ALIA was delighted that ALIA Members' efforts to lobby for copyright reform have paid dividends. The Copyright Amendment (Disability Access and Other Measures) Bill was tabled in Parliament on 22 March and it includes a number of important and overdue amendments that will dramatically free up how Australians can access and use copyright material.
The FAIR campaign was partly responsible for this change.
Back then, FAIR published 35 handwritten recipes on the website – effectively contravening the current copyright law – and we asked ALIA Members, FAIR supporters and Australians to cook one of these recipes – or choose an old favourite – and to post a photo to facebook or tweet with the #cookingforcopyright hashtag. Within two weeks of the launch, the campaign was trending #1 on Twitter with more than 1 500 tweets and 9,973,809 Twitter impressions.
