Senator XENOPHON (South Australia) (18:46): Now that we are in the committee stage I want to ask, in respect of the amendment that Senator Griff will be moving shortly, in general terms on the issue of licence fees, has the government done any modelling or considered at any level within government the prospect of obtaining revenue from Facebook and Google given their disruptive effect on the media landscape, the advertising revenue they have taken away from traditional media outlets and the fact that they do not pay for or create content in the way free-to-air networks do? Has that been considered? Is any modelling being done in respect of that?
