Australian Competition & Consumer Commission v World Netsafe [2002] FCA 517 (30 April 2002)

1 The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) seeks to admit into evidence a statement heard by Daniel Christopher Webb concerning the World Netsafe card allegedly made by Lindsay Birch, an officer of World Netsafe, who promoted the purchase of that card. It is alleged that Mr Birch commenced a World Netsafe meeting by stating: “I am looking after the interests of World Netsafe in Australia.” The reason that this statement is sought to be admitted into evidence is to prove that World Netsafe contravened orders of the Court, and that Mr Terence Butler was guilty of contraventions of the Court’s orders by failing to take reasonable steps to prevent World Netsafe from breaching those orders.
