The Copyright Regulations 1969 and the Copyright Tribunal (Procedure) Regulations 1969 are due to sunset on 1 April 2018.
This consultation process is intended to draw stakeholder views on whether the Copyright Regulations Exposure Draft and the TPM Regulations Exposure Draft (Exposure Drafts) are fit for purpose, including whether they may be further simplified or modernised. The Department is not seeking views on whether substantial, policy changes should be made to the provisions in the Exposure Drafts.
This consultation paper sets out some specific matters in relation to which stakeholder views are sought. However, the Department would welcome submissions on how any aspect of the Exposure Drafts may be simplified or more general comments in relation to whether the Exposure Drafts are fit for purpose.
Submissions on this discussion paper close 6 October 2017.
