Blog, Podcast, Vodcast and Wiki Copyright Guide for Australia

Creative Commons Australia is proud to announce the launch of the Blog, Podcast, Vodcast and Wiki Copyright Guide for Australia.

The Guide, which was launched in March 2009 by Creative Commons Australia’s sister project, the Law Research Program of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation (CCI), examines copyright issues which impact upon creators and users of blogs, podcasts, vodcasts and wikis in the Australian legal environment. In doing so it provides practical examples of how these issues may arise and be resolved.

This Guide is a step towards:

  • ensuring that creators and users of these platforms are fully informed about these issues; and
  • providing strategies for creators and users to prevent or minimise the legal risks created by these issues.

You can download a PDF version of the Guide here.

    If you are putting Photos onto a blog site (it is free) are you able to make sure your photos are ‘copyright’ and that no one can ‘actually copy’ them from that site? Is it up to the blog site?
