This joint submission from the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA), the Australian Digital Alliance (ADA), and the Australian Libraries Copyright Committee (ALCC) expresses the view that the removal of parallel importation restrictions is not needed in order to provide creators with further incentive to create and innovate.
Book industries and trade
This submission from the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) discusses the place of libraries as an integral part of the book industry. They support the book industry as a major purchaser, as custodians and conservators and, as the main provider of books for many users. Libraries support literacy and encourage reading thereby building a culture of books.
