Description

This submission from the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) and the Australian Law Librarians' Association (ALIA) to the Australian law reform commission inquiry into copyright and the digital ecomony discusses the possible reform of Australia's copyright law to benefit the digital economy.
Copyright law impacts on most of what libraries do. It affects the services that libraries can provide to their users and the conditions under which they provide access to copyright materials. It affects the way in which libraries can undertake effective archival and preservation activities. Librarians have traditionally been guardians of copyright. Now they have also become creators of copyright materials, both with digital content and organisational websites.
