Fair Use And Why Australian Schools Need It - Infographic

Fair use infographic 5.1

Schools spend over $700 million each year on purchasing education content. This would be unaffected by fair use.


On top of this, they pay more than $95 million to copyright collecting societies for copying of content. To the extent fair use impacts this number at all, this would only be to:

  1. address the unfair outcomes set out above; and
  2. ensure educational licence fees actually go to authors who are writing to earn a living.
