Project overview



In 2012 the Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC) was requested by the then Attorney General, the Hon Nicola Roxon MP, to conduct an inquiry into and report on current and further desirable uses of copyright material in the digital economy.

The review considered whether existing exceptions and statutory licenses in the Copyright Act 1968 are adequate and appropriate in the digital environment and whether further exceptions should be recommended.

The ALRC’s final report was provided to the Attorney-General on 30 November 2013.
