Internet Intermediaries and Copyright – A 2018 Update

A policy paper prepared by Prof Kimberlee Weatherall to inform discussion by the Australian Digital Alliance. It updates the 2011 policy paper Internet Intermediaries and Copyright: An Australian Agenda for Reform by analysing and comparing the law relating to internet intermediary liability across 10 comparable countries. It concludes that Australia remains an outlier in:

  • the extent to which it currently imposes copyright liability on internet intermediaries, whether those intermediaries are start-­‐ups, established businesses or public sector
  • The way that it distinguishes between different kinds of internet intermediaries in imposing copyright risk.
