ALCC submission to the Senate Committee reviewing the Copyright Amendment (Service Providers) Bill 2017, February 2018

Creator
Australian Libraries Copyright Committee
Description

The Australian Libraries Copyright Committee (ALCC) welcomes current changes to the Bill as an initial step in improving Australia's safe harbour arrangements, but encourage further amendments to ensure that all local online service providers have the same legal certainty. The amendments proposed will provide significant benefits to Australia's library and archive community. They will lower the risk involved in digital engagement projects, and enable our members to more confidently make use of the latest technologies and tools. ALCC also maintains its support for the further extension of the copyright safe harbours to all online service providers, including commercial platforms.
