The current agreement between the Copyright Agency and University Australia covers the period 2014–16.
The agreement will either:
- expire on 31 December 2016, provided one or both parties send notification of termination by 30 June, or
- automatically roll-over for a further 12 months.
The agreement covers 39 Australian Universities and now includes University of Southern Queensland (USQ) and University of Notre Dame (Australia). Australia’s newest university, Torrens University Australia, is covered under a separate agreement.
The agreed remuneration is a commercial lump sum amount and the agreement continues the survey monitoring obligations in the previous agreements which captures the bulk of copying done by universities.Share Tweet
