The Copyright and the Digital Economy Discussion Paper is now available, marking the second phase of broad public consultation for this Inquiry. The Discussion Paper contains 42 questions and proposals regarding reform of the Copyright Act, including the introduction of a broad, flexible exception for fair use of copyright material and the consequent repeal of many of the current exceptions, with a view to making Australia’s copyright regime more flexible and adaptable.
The Discussion Paper is available on the ALRC website.
ALIA will once again be working with the Australian Digital Alliance (ADA) and the Australian Libraries Copyright Committee (ALCC) to create a submission based on the discussion paper. Please email us with any feedback.
