You have failed to realise a crucial point. ASIC is now funded by an annual levy charged to the financial services industry. Therefore, ASIC's legal expenses will be funded by the industry that it takes to court. From a financial perspective ASIC has no downside as it ramps litigation against the financial services sector. Each year ASIC will just hand out larger funding invoices to us.
