Statutory Text and Artistic Licence

Statutory Text and Artistic Licence is set out in Part VB of the Copyright Act and permits educational institutions to make multiple copies of literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works for educational purposes. This licence allows schools and TAFE institutes to copy and communicate text and artistic works in both hard copy and electronic form.

The scheme for managing copying from source material in electronic form under the Statutory Text and Artistic Licence is called the EUS (Electronic Use Scheme).There are rules about how much of a text or artistic work a school/TAFE can copy and how it can be communicated. These rules vary depending on whether the source material is in hard copy or electronic form.

Payment under this Licence is made to the Copyright Agency Limited (CAL) which is the declared collecting society that administers the Licence.
