It takes a special kind of b***s to continuously break one of the most widely known business laws in Australia and to keep doing it for months. Worse, when it stopped breaking it, it didn't tell anyone it was doing so and to its customers continued to act as if it was in force. What is it? Resale Price Maintenance (yes, the very thing that kept Amazon out of Aus for so long because book publishers were exempted from the law).

A notice published on the website of Standard Chartered Bank, Malaysia, says that moneys that have until now been covered by the Central Bank's deposit guarantee scheme are no longer so covered. Especially surprising is the formal distinguishing between Mainland and Labuan bank accounts.

BIScom Subsection: 

The Law Society of England and Wales has issued a notice criticising the policy of "release under investigation" which sees suspects in criminal cases released free of conditions. Not only is it not working, it's proving dangerous, says LawSoc.

It's said that it's impossible to overtake at the Suzuka race circuit but it's not true. There have been winners from way, way down the field. One of the last old-fashioned racing circuits where Formula One still races, this weekend has shown something fascinating: no matter what technical rules are imposed, no matter what generation of drivers is involved - it's tracks like the Honda's Twin Ring Motagi circuits that actually deliver great racing.

Sometimes the twittersphere comes up with a stroke of genius. And it's often when someone thinks up something that allows others to be imaginative and, ideally, a little bit silly. The hashtag "makeahorrorfilmlessscary" is one such and here are five of those that made us laugh.

It's an own goal, an unforced error, an unintended consequence. Those who have pressed for what they have termed (and forced everyone else to term) "gender equality" have ended up with previously taboo and sometimes illegal matters being pushed front and centre.

The Takata airbag scandal raises important questions for insurers in this and other cases of recall. And how Big Data can be used for good.

BIScom Subsection: 

The global airbag scandal involving TAKATA airbags just won't go away. In Australia, BMW, GM Holden, Honda, Mitsubishi and Toyota have been trying to contact some 20,000 car owners to replace the defective equipment but have had no response. Now the government has stepped in. "do not drive these cars at all," it says.

Using the trendy but woefully inaccurate term "oversight" when it means supervision ( see why here), ASIC "urges companies to apply a greater focus and sense of urgency to the oversight and management of non-financial risk..particularly compliance risk. Boards cannot afford to ignore the oversight of non-financial risks." The thing is that ASIC's findings show a failure of awareness of the legal position of directors in Australian companies.

Following an earlier statement (here) Malindo Air has given more details of how its data breach came about.

Australia is cancelling the debts of students of a large failed education provider that once had government backing. It's also obtained massive penalty and restitution orders. But there is a fly in the ointment.

FCRO Subsection: 

In the past year, two of Australia's most high profile departments have undergone so-called "rebranding exercises." ASIC and the ACCC have changed their logos. Was it worth it?

We get the best of the best when it comes to examples of rubbish spam-scams. This just made our day.
