Fair use (copyright)
This submission from the Australian Libraries Copyright Committee (ALCC) to the Copyright Modernisation Review consultation supports the government's goal to modernise Australian copyright law to enable fair use of material by libraries and archives.
The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) recognises that the copyright and intellectual property system must ensure a fair and equitable balance between the rights of creators, owners and users, and the advancement and sharing of knowledge, to encourage creativity, innovation, research, education and learning.
