Dear Mr Nolan
Freedom of Information Request no. FOI14/023
I refer to your request for access to documents relating to proposed 'three strikes' regulations for copyright piracy under the Freedom of Information Act 1982. I have taken your request to be for:
any and all internal communications from the incoming Attorney General's department relating to the proposed 'three strikes' regulations for copyright piracy.
what the Attorney General himself considers to be the 'ultimate' or 'worst' crime.
If you disagree with our interpretation of your request, please let me know as soon as possible.
We received your request on 14 February 2014 and the 30 day statutory period for processing your request commenced from the day after that date. You should therefore expect a decision from us by 17 March 2014. The period of 30 days may be extended if we need to consult third parties or for other reasons. We will advise you if this happens.
It is the usual practice of the Department to not release the names and contact details of junior officers of the Department and other government agencies, where that personal information is contained in documents within scope of a request. The names and contact details of senior officers will generally be released. We will take it that you agree to the removal of junior officers’ personal information unless you advise that you would like us to consider releasing that information as part of the documents you have requested.
Please note that information released under the FOI Act may later be published online on our disclosure log http://www.ag.gov.au/RightsAndProtection...,
subject to certain exceptions. (For example, personal information will not be published where this would be unreasonable.)
We will contact you using the email address you provided. Please advise if you would prefer us to use an alternative means of contact. If you have any questions, please contact the FOI Section by email [AGD request email].
