9 Bonks added extras

You may remember last year's screening of 9 Songs, which I blogged about. Now the NZ Broadcast Standards Authority has upheld a viewer complaint against the film - for not having sufficient warnings about its content beforehand. Not because it had bad sex, bad tits or bad music in it, mind you!
From a professional point of view, I was intrigued to read in the BSA decision that the defendant was TelstraClear, the cable operator, and not the Rialto Channel, the actual broadcaster. Does this mean broadcast platforms will now be liable for content rather than the actual television station? I'm finding out from the BSA.
