Australians Get Around Ban on Getting Up

Marc Ecko's Getting Up is a game set in a futuristic city in which the resident's freedom of speech is oppressed by the government. Similarly, Australia decided to ban the import and retail sale of the game. However, an Australian website,, owned by an American company, Mindscape, offers the game for download directly. Direct downloads occupy a legal gray area since it is not specifically mentioned in the legislation and the site from which the game is downloaded doesn't necessarily have to be an Australian site.

Apparently, the game has already been pulled from the Quicky site. Boo!
