MLex's reporters have had a frantic start to 2022, with global competition lawsuits against Google and Apple spilling over into the Federal Court of Australia and a criminal-cartel prosecution involving local foreign-exchange businesses culminating in guilty pleas. Laurel Henning and James Panichi have also been examining Australian lawmakers' slow progress in updating the 1988 Privacy Act and concerns over how big business manages personal data. For example: Why are private-health insurance companies in Australia so keen to get their hands on fitness data collected by Australian smart-watches? Laurel and James talk through the challenges and the highlights of their Australian regulatory coverage.
