Senators Ludlam and Rhiannon asked the following question at the hearing on 14 February 2012:
Senator LUDLAM: ... I have a follow-up to one of Senator Wright's questions about NOSIC and your slightly creepy consultancy with them. You talked in a bit of detail about open source reporting. Would you consider somebody setting up a fake Facebook account as open source? Do they do that kind of thing?
Mr Negus: I would have to take that on notice. I do not have the detail about whether that would be captured or not; I just do not know.
