From: Brendan Molloy

Delivered

Dear Australian Securities and Investments Commission,

I hereby request, under the Freedom of Information Act (1982), copies of the following:

a) Documents relating to the blocking of, filtering of or interference with the IP address 198.136.54.104, or any websites or services on said IP address; and

I also make the application that all costs for the processing of this request be waived on the grounds that the release of this information is in the public interest, will enhance the transparency of the process and the public debate surrounding Internet censorship.

Dear Ms Gubbins,

Could you please clarify for me if you find any issues with Part A of my request?

I will rephrase Part B:

b) Documents specifying any IP addresses or websites targeted by ASIC for interference, blocking or filtering by the use of s 313 of the Telecommunications Act, from September 2012 to 21 May, 2013.

I reiterate my request that all processing fees are waived as this information is in the public interest.

Thanks.

Perhaps asking for:

A list containing:
Domains and IP addresses ASIC has discussed or proposed taking action under Section 313 and result (was it blocked or not)

may be easier for them?

Dear Ms Gubbins,

As I believe ample time has been given for what is a rather simple but very important request, I reluctantly consent to your request for an extension to 20 June, but I will not consent to any further extension requests.

Dear Mr Molloy,

I advise that ASIC has applied for, and received, a further extension of

Dear Ms Gubbins
Extension of time request under s15AB
Thank you for your correspondence of 20 June 2013, in which you have
requested an extension of time for the Australian Securities and
Investments Commission to process the Pirate Party Australia’s  request of
15 May 2013 under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth) (the Act).
You have sought an extension of time to 28 June 2013 on the basis that the
current processing period is insufficient to deal adequately with the
Pirate Party’s request, because it is complex.  This is an extension
request for eight days.
Decision
We have decided to grant you an extension of time of eight days under
s15AB(2) of the Act to 28 June 2013. In coming to this decision we have
considered the following factors:

* Advice is still being obtained on certain provisions of the FOI Act
which may be applicable to the documents within scope of the request.

We are satisfied with your proposal for managing this request.
If you are unhappy with the way we have handled this matter, you may
complain to the Commonwealth Ombudsman. This service is free, and you can
contact the office on 1300 362 072 or visit [2]www.ombudsman.gov.au.
If you have any questions about this email, please contact me on 6239 9121
or via email at [3][email address]. In all correspondence
please include reference number RQ13/01074.
Yours sincerely

Dear Ms Gubbins,

Thank you for providing the attachment. I note my request specified "Documents specifying any IP addresses or websites" of the request. It seems that the response only includes documents pertaining to IP blocking.

Is my understanding correct that no websites, in the sense of domains, have been blocked by ASIC, and only IP addresses? For example, no requests to block www.example.com but only address such as 1.2.3.4?

If the case is that specific website domains were not addressed as part of this request, I believe that has been overlooked and would consider this request incomplete.

I would much appreciate clarification of this, otherwise thank you for providing the documents.

        Dear Ms Gubbins,
       
        I do not require a signed copy of the PDF. The information is
        sufficient and I thank you for providing it.
       
        I would much prefer that the documents were provided
    digitally,
        i.e. as an attachment sent via email to this address. Whether
        provided to me digitally or physically, these documents will
        ultimately be provided digitally for all to access in the end
        anyway.
       
        While I would much prefer scanned attachments, if a digital
    option
        is not possible, please send the documents to:
       
        Brendan Molloy
        PO Box 527
        Balgowlah NSW 2093

Dear Ms Gubbins,

Unfortunately, that tautology does not answer my query. I am aware that an IP blocking request includes only an IP address. My FOI request however was broader than just IP blocking.

I refer to Part B of my request:

Documents specifying any IP addresses or websites targeted by ASIC for
interference, blocking or filtering by the use of s 313 oåf the
Telecommunications Act, from September 2012 to 21 May, 2013.

Note that I ask for websites, not just IP addresses. I am asking specifically: during your search for documents, did you consider documents referring to websites, not just IP addresses?

    Dear Mr Molloy,
   
    I confirm that all IP Blocking Requests issued by ASIC under
    section 313
    of the Telecommunications Act referred only to IP addresses. I
    hope this
    answers your query.

        Dear Ms Gubbins,
       
        Thank you for providing the attachment. I note my request
    specified
        "Documents specifying any IP addresses or websites" of the
    request.
        It seems that the response only includes documents pertaining
    to IP
        blocking.
       
        Is my understanding correct that no websites, in the sense of
        domains, have been blocked by ASIC, and only IP addresses? For
        example, no requests to block [2][2]www.example.com but only
    address such
        as 1.2.3.4?
       
        If the case is that specific website domains were not
    addressed as
        part of this request, I believe that has been overlooked and
    would
        consider this request incomplete.
       
        I would much appreciate clarification of this, otherwise thank
    you
        for providing the documents.
