THE LATEST NEWS IN COPYRIGHT FOR AUSTRALIAN SCHOOLS AND TAFE
The National Copyright Unit (NCU) is a specialised unit that provides copyright assistance and advice to all Australian government and non-government schools as well as TAFE institutes (excluding Victorian TAFEs) in Australia.
NCU acts on behalf of the Copyright Advisory Group (CAG), which reports to the Education Council. CAG’s committee members are senior representatives from State and Territory Departments of Education, the Catholic and Independent school sectors, and TAFEs nationally (excluding Victorian TAFEs). The NCU:
- provides specialist copyright assistance to schools and TAFEs;
- negotiates and administers the School and TAFE sectors licences with Australian Collecting Societies and related copyright surveys; and
- advocates for copyright law reform benefitting education.
