Copyright is a bundle of rights, protected in law under the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth) and includes economic and moral rights. It both prevents other people from making unauthorised use of an artistic work or treating it in a derogatory manner and can
provide the copyright owner with additional economic gain from the work. NAVA offers a short course on Copyright for Artists and has published a bunch of resources on this website.
