some persistent snooping led to Media Releases under Dazzling Dazza:
REPORT ON COPYRIGHT DIGITAL AGENDA REFORMS
28 April 2004
The Australian Government's digital agenda copyright reforms are effective
and working well, according to an independent report released today.
But the Government remains willing to improve the existing regime where
necessary and will consider carefully recommendations by law firm Phillips
Fox to improve or better assess the impact of the reforms.
Phillips Fox was engaged to analyse key elements of the reforms, which were
introduced in 2001 to update Australia's copyright regime and take into
account the rapid development of new technologies.
Its report, which follows extensive consultation with a wide range of
copyright stakeholders, is an important element of the Government's broader
review of the digital agenda reforms.
Phillips Fox found that "in general, the Digital Agenda Act is achieving
its objectives and is working well".
In some areas, notably in the area of Internet Service Provider liability,
the report will assist in implementing Australia's FTA obligations.
In others, the copyright obligations of Australia's Free Trade Agreement
with the United States supersede the recommendations made in the report.
The report is available on the Attorney-General's Department website at:
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
