Date published:

This Exposure Draft of the Copyright Amendment (Access Reform) Bill aims to simplify and update provisions of the Copyright Act 1968 to better support the needs of Australians accessing content in the digital environment. The Bill builds on the Copyright Amendment (Disability Access and Other Measures) Act 2017 and the Copyright Amendment (Service Providers) Act 2018 by providing reasonable and practical measures that reflect contemporary use of copyright material in the public interest, while maintaining appropriate protections and incentives for content creators.
