IPEd rejects Productivity Commission proposal to limit copyright

Posted on: 13 June 2016

IPEd has endorsed a submission by the Canberra Society of Editors (CSE) to the Productivity Commission Inquiry into Intellectual Property Arrangements, rejecting its proposed changes to copyright.

Through its member societies, IPEd represents more than 1500 editors in Australia’s publishing industry.

IPEd is joining CSE and other organisations in pushing to reject the proposed changes, which could lead to authors, photographers, publishers and artists losing the rights to the work they have produced.

The ‘fair use for copyright works’ laws proposed by the Productivity Commission may result in authors of Australian works being uncredited and unrewarded.

The full submission to the Productivity Commission is available here.

IPEd has established the Editors Directory. Clients can search the directory for freelance editors using specific criteria. These will identify editors that have specific interests, skills or experience in certain areas.
