ALCC Submission to the Senate Legislative Committee Inquiry on the Copyright Amendment (Service Providers) Bill

The ALCC welcomes the amendments proposed by the Copyright Amendment (Service Providers) Bill 2017 as an initial step in improving Australia’s safe harbour arrangements. They will provide significant benefits to Australia’s library and archive community, lower the risk involved in digital engagement projects, and enable our members to more confidently fulfill their role as important service providers for all Australians.

The ALCC also maintains its support for the further extension of the copyright safe harbours to all online service providers, including commercial platforms,to ensure Australia has a fully functional safe harbour system works as intended - to increase the efficiency and reduce the costs of battling online infringement.
