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.
