The request was successful.

From: G King


Dear Australian Communications and Media Authority,

I hereby request a count/tally of "link-deletion" notices issued by the ACMA from 2007 through to present. Please provide separate figures for interim versus final notices.

To be clear, I am not requesting access to details of the offensive content, rather numbers around the frequency of notices issued.

Yours faithfully,

G King
