What the right wing has forgotten is that individual rights only apply so long as they do not infringe on the rights of others. They ignore that second part, and define anything that protects the rights of individuals or groups that have long been oppressed as "taking away their rights".You talk like Australia is a country like China or Russia, Pffff, Australia is one of the country's with the best trust wordy legal systems.
And tell me, don't have victims of cyberbullying or trolling have rights to, or do they just have to take is as a fact of life that they can't do anything?
Yeah, there are sure problems with this law, but, that's always the case with laws that fringe on the rights of privacy, but it's not like the data can be given over just because the victim wants them, it still needs a judge to approve the case to see that the victim is really a victim of a crime, or just a victim of free speech.
Looks to me like they are in the right spots on the lists that really matter on rights:
State of World Liberty Index (Nr 4)
The 27 countries in the world with the most freedom (Nr 6)
Countries by adherence to the Rule of Law according to the 2017–18 World Justice Project report (Nr 13)
