Copyright

Copyright is a set of exclusive rights given to authors or creators of works, or copyright owners to protect their works against unauthorised use.

Copyright protects the expression of ideas in a material form; it does not protect ideas, concepts, styles, techniques or information.  Copyright in Australia is governed by the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth).  International treaties also apply.

Copyright in the University Context

Copyrighted materials are consistently being used and created within the University community.  In making use of materials, the University and every member of its community has legislative compliance obligations relating to copyright which pose a high risk if they are not met. This is reinforced by the University's Copyright Policy.

The University Copyright Officer presents Copyright education sessions for staff who wish to develop a more thorough understanding of copyright in the University context.
