Chapter Summary

Australia's standpoint, namely that the current level of protection of broadcasting organisations is sufficient can be supported as long as public policy analysis demonstrates that it is right. However, this standpoint leads to the question of why Australia needed to amend its Copyright Act 1968 (Cth) although there had been no problems in relation to the rights of broadcasting organisations in Australia. This chapter analyses the Australian Copyright Act 1968 (Cth) at the time of the first session of the WIPO Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights. It examines the Copyright Amendment (Digital Agenda) Act 2000 (Cth), which is the latest amendment of the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth) related to broadcasters' rights, enacted in 2000. The chapter analyses a recent case regarding the protection of broadcasting, TCN Channel Nine Pty Ltd v Network Ten Pty Ltd.
