Government Licences

We have agreements with the Commonwealth and State and Territory government departments to allow staff to copy and share content internally for government purposes.

These agreements set out arrangements for the application of provisions in the Copyright Act 1968 that allow Commonwealth, State and Territory government to copy and communicate copyright protected content internally without the permissions usually required, provided there an agreement with Copyright Agency for fair compensation to the content creators. These provisions are often referred to as the Government Statutory Licence (or, sometimes, section 183).
