Australia To Explore Adding Greater Copyright Exceptions

While we noted that the entertainment industry was absolutely freaking out over the possibility of greater copyright exceptions (fair use, fair dealing, etc.) in the UK, it's been really encouraging to see significant interest in copyright exceptions elsewhere. In that second link, we talked about efforts down in Australia to get the government to explore greater copyright exceptions as part of the TPP treaty. Perhaps those efforts are having an effect. It appears that the Australian Law Reform Commission is now considering the possibility of expanding the use of copyright exceptions within the law.

The the full document (pdf) notes that it needs to be explored if the existing exceptions are "adequate and appropriate in the digital environment" and if greater exceptions might:

    facilitate legitimate use of copyright works to create and deliver new products and services of public benefit; and
    allow legitimate non-commercial use of copyright works for uses on the internet such as social networking.

For those of you who live in Australia, there's an open comment period for what the "terms of reference" for the inquiry should include. You can be absolutely sure that the industry folks will be working hard to stifle copyright exceptions. Hopefully the public's voice -- and the voice of real creators who value and make use of exceptions every day -- will be heard as well.

What discussions in the UK? I haven't heard of this anywhere. If its out their it certainly ain't being discussed. On any UK news sites I frequent. That wants looking into and publishing if it exists in my country too.

interesting irony when it comes to news sites and especially tv news... if you want to see what your own country is doing look at the news being reported about your country in another.... the bbc for instance tells more about whats going on in the united states than any us media outlet...
