Elon Musk wins case against Australian government over removal of footage

New Delhi: Tesla CEO Elon Musk won a case against the Australian government on Monday after a court invalidated a legal block by the country's regulator guiding the removal of footage of a stabbing attack in Sydney from a social media platform.

The Australian court had earlier granted a two-day injunction, ordering the platform to hide videos of the April 15 church stabbing for its users globally. X, however, agreed to hide the footage from Australian viewers but kept it accessible for international users. The Federal Court has now overturned the legal block on videos of the Sydney church stabbing on X, reports The Australian.

Musk reacted, saying that he is not trying to win anything. “I just don’t think we should be suppressing Australians' rights to free speech,” the tech billionaire posted. Last month, Musk hit out at Australia over the attempts to ban footage of the Sydney church stabbing on X. "Our concern is that if ANY country is allowed to censor content for ALL countries, which is what the Australian 'eSafety Commissar' is demanding, then what is to stop any country from controlling the entire Internet," Musk wrote on X.

Australia's Prime Minister Anthony Albanese had told ABC News Breakfast that Musk was an "arrogant billionaire."
