Copyright Essentials
Copyright Essentials

In this practical guide we set out the framework for copyright protection in Australia, how it works in practice, and how to identify when your activities are likely to have copyright implications. Each part in the book deals with a separate aspect of copyright law, and we provide real life examples and cases throughout to illustrate how copyright works in practice.

The topics we cover include:

  • What is copyright and why we have it
  • How you get copyright
  • Who owns copyright
  • How long copyright lasts
  • When you need permission
  • When you don’t need permission: special exceptions
  • Who to contact for permission
  • Selling and licensing rights
  • What happens if there is an infringement
