There are issues of privacy (as distinct from access) that can arise from the publication of any court or tribunal decisions. See the discussion below under 'Naming of respondents and complainants'.
 This is not a big omission as yet. The few Federal Court decisions referring to the Act are not all that important.
 In NSW, the appealable privacy decisions are those made by agencies. The Privacy Commissioner only mediates, and there are no examples yet of judicial review of his actions.
 This suggestion was made by John Corker
 This is apparently so under the NSW Act
 Private communication
 The decisions would then be part of a 'commons' in the terminology popularised by Lawrence Lessig in relation to the Internet. For arguments since 19995 that essential legal information should be part of the commons ('public space in cyberspace') of Internet content, see our various articles about AustLII.
 In the Asia-Pacific there are as yet few secondary publishers of privacy case law and complaints. They include Privacy Law & Policy Reporter (PLPR)
 AustLII <http://www.austlii.org>, CanLII <http://www.canlii.org> and HKLII <http://www.hklii.org> - see also WorldLII <http://www.worldlii.org> which they cooperatively provide.
 The practice has been adopted in Australia that citations of Federal bodies end with 'A' for 'Australia' (eg 'FCA', 'HCA') whereas those for State and Territory bodies start with the abbreviation for the State. 'Cmr' is used for 'Commissioner', whereas 'Comm' is used for 'Commission'. This may be slightly inconsistent, but it is now the settled practice.
