Copyright Reform

The Australian Law Reform Commission has released an Issues Paper, Copyright and the Digital Economy, as part of its inquiry into copyright reform.  The paper asks more than 50 questions about how the current copyright framework is affecting both commercial and creative/cultural enterprises and how current exceptions and statutory licences are working in the digital environment.

CAMD will be responding to the Issues Paper and welcomes input from its members on the question of current copyright exceptions and the potential for reform.

The closing date for submissions on the Issues Paper is Friday 16 November 2012.
