Copyright law and policy submissions to government consultations

    The ADA agrees with the ACCC that Australia would benefit from a standardised takedown system for the removal of copyright infringing content posted by third parties to digital platforms. However, such a scheme should be introduced through extending the well established safe harbour system which applies to all other service providers in these circumstances, to include all platforms to which the mandatory standards would apply.

    The ADA is supportive of the use of collective licences in Australia’s copyright system as an efficient and effective method of addressing practical barriers to the use of copyright material, particularly in relation to large scale uses for which remuneration is appropriate. However, we also have significant concerns regarding the anti-competitive risks of such licences when not subject to appropriate regulation and oversight.

    The ADA and the ALCC acknowledge that we are not experts with respect to Indigenous Cultural Intellectual Property (ICIP) however we recognise that this is an important issue that impacts upon the entire community. There is growing awareness of the importance of ICIP in the many of the sectors to which our members belong, especially the cultural and education sectors. As such we support IP Australia’s efforts to more effectively recognise and protect ICIP in Australia.
