The Asia Internet Coalition (AIC) is a lobby group representing technology companies.
Mr Jeff Paine's op-ed of May 4 (How the online falsehoods Bill can be improved) should be read in that context. He is the managing director of AIC. His piece misstates the Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Bill in material respects. This is surprising, given the Government's extensive consultations with technology companies, not to mention our public explanations.
