Are you "a website or part of a website", that publishes "content that reports, investigates or explains current issues or events of interest to Australians"? Congratulations, according to the NMBC you are a "news source" and therefore a "news business".
Platforms like Facebook are to be required to treat every "news business" "without differentiation" under the NMBC, in regard to a number of things (including whether or not you are "registered" under the NMBC).
Here's the rub: communication can take any form. There's an argument to be made that every Australian who posts on Facebook is a "news business" until proven otherwise.
... and the simplest way to avoid differentiation is to block everyone.
... and if only the Government were this forthcoming with protections for journalists!

A very happy Valentine's Day to everyone except the surveillance state and the surveillance capitalists!
