In response to your call for submissions associated with the current datacasting review, I am happy to submit my views on behalf of the Interactive Television Research Institute at Murdoch University. I fully appreciate the challenging task you face in identifying a viable policy solution as crafting an effective framework remains a major challenge for policymakers worldwide. It is clear, however, that the existing regime is unlikely to deliver the Commonwealth’s policy objectives, hence a change to the scheme seems well timed.

I should caution that the very short window allowed for making this submission, particularly falling over the holiday period as it did, has significantly inhibited my capacity to more fully develop the range of arguments presented herein. As it is, I am forced to develop this submission while traveling overseas. Although I have not been able to more fully develop and document my arguments in the manner I would have preferred, given this short window, I am happy to elaborate on any of the points raised should the Department value additional insight.
