Today's Video Focus: Farmers are calling for the animal rights group Aussie Farms to be stripped of its charity status and have its Facebook page taken down. The group launched an online map showing the location and contact details for hundreds of farms across the country, linking them to animal cruelty. Aussie Farms says the initiative is about increasing transparency but Agriculture Minister David Littleproud is warning the site "could be creating an attack map for activists".

Focus of the Say Article:
On 3 and 4 December 2018, the first International Forum on Online Courts was held in London.  There were 300 delegates from about 30 different countries.  It undertook an international review of what is happening in many countries around the world.  It looked at technological issues, matters of access to justice, practicalities for lawyers and the judiciary, examples of innovations and lessons to be learned.  It was co-organised by the Society for Computers and Law (SCL) and by Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunal Service (HMCTS) which, in the UK, runs the court service.
