This paper questions the common legal assumption that Internet protocol television (IPTV) in its typical form is necessarily a service delivered using or over the Internet. It uses two aspects of Australian law one in broadcasting and the other in copyright to examine whether the Internet exclusions enacted truly apply to such IPTV. The conclusion reached is that neither applies for the same reason; IPTV in the form outlined does not implicate the Internet. Copyright 2010 David Brennan.
