Ben Grubb reports:

Monday marks 688 days since I first asked Telstra for the metadata generated by my mobile phone – the same information it routinely gives law-enforcement and intelligence agencies without a warrant when investigating crime.

Monday also marks the start of Privacy Awareness Week 2015, which usually goes by each year without too much fuss and, to be quite frank, is a little boring. But this year’s Privacy Awareness Week is different.

You see, Monday also marks the day the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner has made public a landmark decision in relation to my battle with Telstra for access to my metadata.

Read more on The Sydney Morning Herald and read the decision.

  1. Amazing struggle. Amazing story.

    +1 for the win.
    +1 for fighting till the end. Many would have given up.
