New Legal Deposit Legislation for Australia Takes Effect

New legislation will come into effect this month to extend legal deposit to cover online publishing.

Legal Deposit is a requirement under the Copyright Act 1968 for publishers and self publishing authors to deposit a copy of works published in Australia with the National Library and when applicable, the deposit libraries in your home state. Legal Deposit ensures that Australian publications are preserved for use now and in the future.

The National Library of Australia.
