Not broken any laws? The ACMA Code of Conduct for Talkback and Interviews:
The purpose of this Code is to prevent the unauthorised broadcast of statements by identifiable persons.
6.1 A licensee must not broadcast the words of an identifiable person unless:
(a) that person has been informed in advance or a reasonable person would be aware that the words may be broadcast; or
(b) in the case of words which have been recorded without the knowledge of the person, that person has subsequently, but prior to the broadcast, expressed consent to the broadcast of the words.
