Dear all,
My mate Bret Whitney is compiling a paper about the potential negative effects of overuse of tapes on birds, a growing issue as the use of
digital recordings is becoming so widespread.
Here is his request:
Thanks for this info.  I wonder if you could possibly find the
official number of the law and date it went into effect in
Queensland? Has anyone ever actually been arrested or cited to pay a fine or other penalty? It seems that we’re all fearing fines and
penalties from heresay or sign-postings about playback — but is it
actually a law anywhere? Would a park actually have legal grounds in a court of law for leveling a fine on someone? Perhaps so, but it’s not at all clear to me, at least. Not that I want to fight any fine I or others might ever receive — I just want to know if there is
actually any written, formal legislation on the subject anywhere in
the world.  I’m having trouble finding anything here in the US.

If anyone can help that'd be great. Thanks
Phil Gregory
