Section 200AB Flexible Dealing handbook online

In 2008, the Australian Libraries Copyright Committee and the Australian Digital Alliance published a handbook on use of section 200AB, introduced into Australian law through the Copyright Amendment Act 2006 (Cth) with the aim of providing a 'flexible exception to enable copyright material to be used for certain socially beneficial purposes, while remaining consistent with Australia's obligations under international copyright treaties'.

Following on from the 2007 ALCC Copyright Training Sessions, a number of examples where s200AB might be of use to libraries, archives, galleriesand educational institutions have been collected together to form the bulk of the handbook.
