In my view, the question is very clear to Google: respect the wishes of corporations, or those of ordinary human beings; being a corporation, they side with with other corporations against humans. Google has sufficient power to decide each dilemma to suit themselves, & they have.
I remember when the book was first published in Australia, back in about '84. It could only be sold in over 18 premises (typically adult books shops) & was shrinkwrapped, with an warning sticker on the wrap. When I read that these guys had been busted for it, I guessed that the censorship dinosaurs went back to the original classification rules from '84, & used that as their excuse to satisfy the puritans who reported it.
Besides the Internet+Cable TV bundles mentioned by so many in the comments, the big reason for keeping Cable that I hear from a lot of people is live sporting events. If anyone comes up with a legal way to stream the popular stuff online, Cable TV will be dead, dead, dead.
50W x 5 sockets = 10A per socket. That's 4x the 2.5A maximum current needed to meet USB spec's, yet it can only charge 4 tablets at once? Please check that 50W rating, because it doesn't make sense. I'm betting that the rating is actually 10W, which would mesh with the rest of the description.
We already have that; it's part of the PBS (Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme) & it keeps drug prices (at least for anything on their big list) affordable. One of the big issues with the TPP here, that most Australians are unaware of, is that it'll likely destroy the PBS.
...because when the TPP passes - & Abbott will ensure that it will - Australian courts & politicians will no longer have any influence over Big Pharma drug prices in Australia anyway. I imagine that the only reason they were uncomfortable was that they had been counting on the TPP passing before being called on their pricing.
"since Google is NOT a publisher in this matter." You're right about Gutnick being the wrong precedent, but there's actually an older, better one she could be using instead: Godfrey vs Demon Internet, which was over a Usenet post that defamed Godfrey, & was won in the UK, which (unsurprisingly) has very closely related laws to those of Australia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godfrey_v_Demon_Internet_Service
Your reading sounds reasonable, but 'reasonable' is not how these things work. In practice, it would go like this: * Nation mandates that gov't will ONLY use OS software, * Microsoft/Oracle/etc run crying to the international Arbitrator (run by them & other multinationals), crying 'Unfair!111!', * Arbitrator sues the crap out of Nation on the basis of this agreement, in a similar way to how Australia is being dragged through multiple international legal cases over its plain-packaging tobacco laws. * Nation recinds it's OSS laws, or loses gigabuck$$$.
The machine pumps very hot (~90C) water at high pressure through holes punched in the pods. While I've never heard of it happening, it's not at all implausible that thin, cheap plastic pods could deform or even burst. Of course, you'd expect the company to play up such dangers for marketing purposes, even if they're rare, or even theoretical.
The police shouldn't be handling it anyway, as copyright violations are a civil matter, not a criminal matter. It amazes me that Americans seem to be just fine with corporations using the cops as collection agents - if a private citizen asks the cops to bust someone who owes them money, the cops will laugh at them.
