I say imminent, but we’re talking about politics here. It could be years away. Still, it’s a nice enough step to be able to say that the Bill is looking like it might pass, which means gamers in Upside-down Land may soon be able to enjoy the same games as the rest of the free world.

Good luck, Australians!
