The Copyright Act 1968 grants exclusive rights to creators and owners of copyright material. These exclusive rights include the right to:
- Reproduce, or
- copy, or
- publish, or
- perform, or
- communicate (by email or making available online), or
- translate, or
- adapt the material.
Creators of some types of works are also granted Moral Rights.
Copyrighted material must not be used in a manner that infringes the copyright owner's exclusive rights or Moral Rights, unless with the consent of the copyright owner or otherwise as provided in the Act.
Copyright infringements may result in civil or criminal action against Allara and / or the individual responsible for the infringement.
Ownership of created materials
Allara asserts ownership of all intellectual property created by a staff member for the purposes of research, teaching, training and assessment and administration during the staff member’s employment at Allara.
Allara does not assert ownership of copyright in any literary work written by a staff member for the purpose of scholarly research, such as a journal article, conference proceeding, monograph, or book.
Allara does not assert ownership of copyright in any artistic, musical, dramatic, or other creative work created or composed by a staff member, except where such a work has been commissioned by Allara.
Allara will respect the moral rights of authors of teaching materials unless it obtains their consent otherwise by:
- attributing (giving credit to) the creator.
- not saying a person is a creator of a work when they’re not.
- not do something with a work (such as change or add to it) that would have a negative impact on the creator’s reputation.
Creators have moral rights even if they do not own copyright in their work. They cannot sell or completely waive their rights, but they can give consent for certain things that may otherwise breach their moral rights.
All stakeholders of Allara must comply with copyright laws. Infringement of copyright is not permissible. All stakeholders should note the following conditions:
- You may copy one or more articles in each issue of a newspaper or magazine relating to the same subject matter.
- You may copy up to 10% of the number of pages in a collection of works, if the works being copied have not been separately published, or, whether the work is separately published or not, it is not more than 15 pages long.
- You may copy the whole of any work if you check with the supplier that the work will not be available for purchase within 14 days (or six months for textbooks) at the price you would normally pay.
