Copyright Policy Working Party

A forum for TCF Member's who are ISPs to discuss and respond to any activities or policies in relation to copyright infringement and the Copyright Act.

Summary

On 1st September 2011 changes to the Copyright Act came into effect that provide a more effective means for copyright owners to enforce their rights against people involved in unauthorised sharing of copyright material via the Internet.

Sections 122a-122R of this Act include enforcement measures against the unauthorised sharing of copyright material via the internet. The revised Act requires Internet Protocol Address Providers (IPAPs) to pass on copyright infringement detection notices from rights owners to IPAP account holders.
