Provisions of the Copyright Amendment Bill 2006 Summary

OSIA is grateful for the opportunity to comment on this Bill. Open source businesses aggregate components from possibly thousands of sources. It is not feasible for a business to rigorously check copyright ownership on each component. It would be poor policy to require the replication of this checking at each level of the distribution chain.

For further details see attached.
