A word about Copyright

The Copyright Act 1968 (Commonwealth) exists to protect the economic and moral rights of the author/creator of a work. 

In books, you need to seek express permission from the author or publisher to reproduce copyright material, unless you are using a ‘reasonable portion’for: 

  • Research or study 
  • Reporting news 
  • Criticism or review 
  • Educational purposes such as a performance of a literary work in class where the classes are not conducted for profit 

A ‘reasonable portion’ is defined in the Act as being either 10% of the number of pages in a print edition or a single chapter if the book has chapters. In electronic publishing, the limits are 10% of the number of words in the work or one chapter if the work has chapters. 

For further advice about copyright, visit the Australian Copyright Council website.
