The speaker at the Australian Cyber Conference in Melbourne was asked to change a little his speech about the law of Australian anti-encryption, after they had fired the other two speakers who made reports regarding violations at the last minute. The organisers ordered Ted Ringrose, partner with legal advice firm Ringrose Siganto, to edit his talk and was sent with a 'correct' version. He said, they don't agree with a comparison between Australia’s legislation laws and China’s. It was told, though Australia looks worse, in fact, it is as bad.
Ringrose refused censorship and the organizators let him present his speech as planned. It contradicts the desicions related to speeches by US whistleblower Thomas Drake.
On Tuesday, it became known that the former head of the National Security Agency, who exposured Drake, along with Dreyfus was removed from the agenda of the conference, which Drake called the “Orwellian” step of the conference partner, the Australian Cybersecurity Center. That step was labelled as 'weird'. On the second day of the conference, which was attended by 3,500 people in Melbourne, the technologist Schneier said that for Drake and Dreyfus it was a "very strange story" to ban speaking at this event, because the speeches themselves were not absolutely controversial.
The conference has also banned journalists to be there, though it was nothing unpublished before there.
