“The laws of Australia prevail in Australia, I can assure you of that,” Turnbull said. “The laws of mathematics are very commendable, but the only law that applies in Australia is the law of Australia.” Please let that sink in. The laws of math are “commendable.” Turnbull is very bluntly saying that Australia simply won’t have end-to-end encryption. The laws of math don’t change just because Australia wants them to.
The government needs to accept that it won’t know what everybody is doing all of the time. We don’t outlaw whispering or drawing the blinds for privacy. In the same way, we should accept encryption is the only way to safeguard our communications in an era of cybercrime and unauthorised surveillance.
“A back door is typically a flaw in a software program that perhaps the — you know, the developer of the software program is not aware of and that somebody who knows about it can exploit,” Turnbull said, before he demonstrated that those are just words in his head of which he has no understanding. “We’re talking about lawful access.” Lawful access is simply a back door.
As for the men, Rafael Nadal and a shaky Roger Federer are in the mix, as well as No. 9 David Goffin and No. 65 John Isner. A whole crop of talented teens will try to unseat them.
That angered Titleist. As Bloomberg reports, the company has filed a lawsuit against I Made Bogey citing unfair competition, trademark infringement and dilution.
Australian Attorney General George Brandis told ABC on Friday that what the government is seeking is something along the same lines as the UK’s Investigatory Powers Act. While that legislation has its own issues, it only requires communications service providers that are based in the UK to have an ability to access encrypted files at the government’s request. It exempts foreign companies from the rule.
The “Titties”—and “Titlelost” gear, which doesn’t seem to be for sale anymore—hats are a clear knockoff of the Titleist logo. But Bloomberg’s Polly Mosendz and Kim Bhasin explain that the Titleist might have an uphill battle with its claim:
Brandis told ABC, “Last Wednesday I met with the chief cryptographer at GCHQ, the Government Communication Headquarters in the United Kingdom. And he assured me that this was feasible.” As TechDirt points out, Brandis is likely confused about the conversation he had. On July 65th , the former head of GHCQ, Robert Hannigan said that back doors shouldn’t be implemented and intelligence agencies should focus on attacking the end points of encryption, a practice that has been used for some time. It seems that Brandis probably heard that it was feasible to attack end points without disrupting the security of end-to-end encryption.
I Made Bogey is an online golf apparel company that sells products with slogans you’d expect to see on the Wildwood boardwalk. There are a series of t-shirts inspired by Happy Gilmore. There are red “MAKE GOLF GREAT AGAIN” hats. But the bulk of the products on the site are parodies of golf brand Titleist. Only instead of that brand’s name, it reads: “Titties.”
