Consultations Unpacked: Harmful Digital Communications Bill aka the Cyber-bullying Bill, an open discussion

Council of Social Services Dunedin & Dunedin Community Law Centre invite you to discuss the proposals and assist with formulating a possible submission to Parliament.

The Bill proposes to mitigate harm caused to individuals by digital communications and to provide victims of harmful digital communications with a quick and efficient means of redress. It follows the Law Commission’s 2012 Ministerial Briefing paper Harmful Digital Communications and proposes:

  • creating a new civil enforcement regime to quickly and effectively deal with harmful digital communications
  • creating new criminal offences to deal with the most serious harmful digital communications
