Joint submission in response to the Attorney-General's Department review of technological protection measures

TPMs exceptions should be extended to allow libraries, educational and cultural institutions, and consumers to make full use of important exceptions for non-infringing uses in the Copyright Act.

The joint submission from the ADA and ALCC on the Attorney General’s Department review of technological protection measure exceptions made under the Copyright Act 1968.

We recommend exceptions for circumventing TMPs be extended to include making non-infringing copies of those works for the purposes of fair dealing and activities permitted by the flexible dealing provision in s200AB.
