Imagination foregone: a qualitative study of the reuse practices of Australian creators

Report prepared for the Australian Digital Alliance (ADA)
Fair use Copyright Adaptive reuse Arts citizen participation Creative workforce Australia

Between January and April 2017, we conducted in-depth, semi-structured interviews with 29 Australian creators, across a wide variety of art forms, and with a range of expertise in their relevant fields.

We asked participants open-ended questions about their experiences in creative practice, focusing on how legal rules and other forms of regulation influenced their work (if at all). In particular, participants were asked about their licensing and re-use practices.

The aim of these interviews was to understand how creators engage with copyright law in the course of their practice, and to explore any barriers that may exist regarding how these creators choose to use copyrighted content in creating new cultural goods.
