Australia Introduces New Copyright Exceptions

Australia Introduces New Copyright Exceptions:
The Australian Attorney-General has issued a press release, announcing the results of the 12-month review of its copyright law. … In essence, the government has decided not to adopt the U.S. fair use system — where a broadly worded defence must be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Instead, the government will expand, and amend, existing specific exceptions in Australian law. That makes the amendments complicated, but potentially more certain. [Weatherall’s Law] CopyCense: K.

fair use is interesting because it makes that which falls outside of it, protected slightly differently, usually stronger.
