The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has developed these guidelines to assist in the determination of reasonable copyright remuneration in proceedings relating to voluntary licences and licence schemes before the Copyright Tribunal of Australia (Copyright Tribunal).
The guidelines may also assist collecting societies and copyright users when negotiating reasonable copyright remuneration by providing insight into the economic framework that the ACCC consider could reasonably be adopted, and the approaches that can be used in applying that framework.
These guidelines do not seek to provide guidance on non-price terms of copyright licences.
The ACCC invites comments and submissions on the draft guidelines to assist the Copyright Tribunal in the determination of copyright remuneration (Copyright Guidelines).
All submissions will be considered by the ACCC as public submissions and will be posted on the ACCC website.
Interested parties can make an online submission specific to the issues raised 5 pm Tuesday 20 November 2018.
