CCANZ is delighted to let everyone know that MBIE have announced an upcoming review of the Copyright Act. The objectives of the review are to:
- assess how well the Copyright Act 1994 is meeting our objectives for copyright
- identify any barriers to achieving the objectives and how these affect creators, publishers, distributors, users and consumers
- put together a plan to address any issues that we identify.
We encourage all members of our community to actively engage with this process and sign up for updates from MBIE. Getting copyright right and creating a balanced system where our creative industries can thrive, business can innovate, and educators can have the resources they need to teach is key to building a thriving New Zealand for the 21st century.
