Review of the Code of Conduct for Copyright Collecting Societies
The Bureau of Communications and Arts Research (the Bureau) released its draft report of the review of the Code of Conduct for Copyright Collecting Societies.
14 February 2018
The review is examining the extent to which the Code remains the best mechanism to promote efficient, effective and transparent administration of copyright licences, and supports overall confidence in Australia’s collective copyright management system. The Bureau is seeking feedback on the potential options for improving the Code outlined in the draft report, which seek to:
increase clarity around the role of the Code
improve transparency around collecting societies’ operations, and
strengthen governance arrangements for collecting societies and the Code.
