The Roundtable that Wasn't

On the 28th of October, The Australian reported, and Any Any reported that The Australian Reported, that incoming attorney general George Brandis had sent letters to telcos and content owners to re-ignite a roundtable on piracy.  Subsequent to that reporting Any Any filed a request under the Freedom of Information act requesting those letters and other information pertaining to the proposed discussions.

Today, one day before the statutory deadline, the department responded that the documents in question do not exist.  The Australian was either mislead or made it up.

The decision letter from the department is here.
