so link doesn't support attachments ... i suppose i should have expected 
that ... anyway, here's what i was trying to forward:
> Hi everyone
> As some of you may be aware, there are some significant changes to the
> Copyright Act about to take place.  These include:
> Amendments implementing the anti-circumvention provisions of the
> Australia - United States Free Trade Agreement: http://tinyurl.com/zmeu7
> New enforcement provisions and criminal offences for copyright
> infringement: http://tinyurl.com/rft44
> New exceptions to copyright, including what purports to be a "time
> shifting" exception: http://tinyurl.com/kmzwj
> The AG's department has indicated that a bill incorporating these
> amendments will be introduced this month, and will be referred to the
> Senate Legal and Constitutional Affairs committee.  EFA will be making a
> submission to the committee at the appropriate time.
> I would encourage each of you to have a look at the proposed changes and
> the explanatory memoranda.  If you have concerns about the changes (and
> I imagine that many of you will), I urge you to either make a submission
> to the committee, or contact me about them (so that if appropriate they
> can be included in EFA's submission), or both.
> Thanks!

> EFA Vice-Chair
