Copyright is a complex issue. In relation to accessible format materials, there are some copyright exemptions relevant to both students and staff. Educational institutions are allowed to make copies for students with a disability under what is called a 'statutory licence'. Students access these copies after agreeing not to share them, and to use them solely for purposes of pursuing a course of study. There is useful information on this topic at: http://www.tased.edu.au/tasonline/ gateways/lnfo/copyright.html#6

It is important to remember that documents converted into alternative formats may not be freely distributed. Permission has been granted by the copyright owners of all documents for converted documents to be created and accessed solely in order to assist people with a print disability, and breaches of these conditions may be punishable under relevant legislation.

 

Major Copyright Reforms Strike Balance

Attorney-General Philip Ruddock today announced significant copyright reforms which make our laws fairer for consumers and tougher on copyright pirates.

“These are commonsense amendments which will maintain Australia’s copyright laws as the best in the world for the benefit of our creators and other copyright owners and for the many Australians who enjoy their creative works,” Mr Ruddock said. >>> more

In order to rely on the print disability provisions in the Copyright Act, you must sign an
agreement with Copyright Agency Limited (CAL). Under this agreement, you will be
obliged to take part in “sampling surveys” of the copies you make under the licence
during a particular period, if requested by CAL. Alternatively, you could make an
agreement under which you keep full records of all copies you make under the licence.
For further information (including how to have your organisation declared a print disability
organisation for these purposes), contact CAL or go to
