What is Copyright in Australia?

Copyright Law – What is fair use and does it exist in Australia?  July 23, 2009 – 02:59 am
documents

Under the United States Copyright Law the term Fair Use describes the limited use of copyrighted material without having to require the authors permission or paying royalties.

Two examples of this are parodies/satires and reviews. In a review you would reproduce lines of text or images depending on the item under review in order to achieve the purpose of the review. Under the Fair Use right you are allowed to do so without requiring any kind of permission. With a parody it is necessary to take something from the original in order to make it work. A fairly extensive use of the original is permitted when it comes to parodies as that is what’s needed to conjure up the original.

As of 2009 Fair Use does not exist in the Australian Copyright Law. However, there has been some extended exceptions of the rules. These include.

  • 2 new private use exceptions (time-shifting and format-shifting)
  • Allowing schools, uni’s, libaries and other cultural institutions to use copyrighted material for non-commercial use
  • Exceptions for people with disabilities
  • Exceptions for use of copyrighted material for parody or satire
  • Enforcement measures

Quotations from the Freedom Crowd

'I never intend to adjust myself to the madness of militarism.'
- Martin Luther King Jr.
'However sugarcoated and ambiguous, every form of authoritarianism must start with a belief in some group's greater right to power, whether that right is justified by sex, race, class, religion, or all four. However far it may expand, the progression inevitably rests on unequal power and airtight...iners, the weavers, the chemists, the carvers, the dyers, the designers, the machinists, where were the hands, the people who made?

Interview with Chomsky from India

Chomsky In First Person
In this exclusive interview, Noam Chomsky speaks to V.K. Ramachandran about the 'new war against terrorism', imperialism, the media and the role of intellectuals.
November 15, 2001: there is a break in the North East monsoon, and it is a clear, cool day in Thekkady. Noam Chomsky is on the second day of his first holiday in many years, a five-day break from pu...tle illegitimate authority and expand the domains of freedom and justice? The task, then, is not to 'speak truth' to the king, or even to the king's subjects, but to learn from them, to contribute what we can, and to participate with them in common struggle for values we discover and uphold. It seems to me that those are the directions in which responsibilities of intellectuals should be sought.
