New South Wales Government Licensees

In December 2019, the State of New South Wales and the Copyright Agency settled proceedings in the Copyright Tribunal and entered into a new whole of government copyright agreement.

The agreement applies to all NSW government agencies (except State Owned Corporations and educational institutions covered by the Statutory Education Licence) for the period 1 July 2012 to 30 June 2026.

It allows internal government copying and communication of third party copyright text and images (excluding survey plans, software, soundtracks and electronic newspaper content) under section 183 of the Copyright Act.
