Exceptions are an important part of the Australian copyright law landscape due to the role they play in delineating the extent of the rights held by copyright owners and, correspondingly, the permitted activities of users of copyright materials. The nature and scope of copyright exceptions has been examined in several reviews of copyright law 1 and are again being considered by the Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC) as part of the ‘Copyright and the Digital Economy’ review which is currently underway. The ALRC’s terms of reference require it to examine, inter alia, ‘whether the exceptions and statutory licences in the Copyright Act 1968 are adequate and appropriate in the digital environment.’ 2 While the ALRC inquiry focuses on exceptions provided under the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth) (Copyright Act), there are several copyright exceptions in other Commonwealth statutes which are of relevance and which should not be overlooked.
