Copyright is the right to control the copying and some other forms of exploitation of copyright material. In Australia, the rights of copyright owners derive from the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth) ("the Act"). The Act also grants other rights (performers' protection and moral rights) which complement copyright, and are briefly discussed in this chapter.
