New measures to tackle online copyright infringement

Of interest to artists will be a new move by the Government to try to tackle on-line copyright infringement. Industry leaders have been asked to immediately develop an industry code establishing a process to notify consumers when a copyright breach has occurred and provide information on how they can gain access to legitimate content. Failing agreement by April, the Government will impose binding arrangements either by a prescribed industry code or an industry standard.
