Can You Write a Wrong? Copyright in Australia — free replay of today's Down Under webinar by Cathie Sherwood now available for limited time


The recording of today's webinar by Cathie Sherwood, "Can You Write a Wrong? Copyright in Australia” is now available to view at for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

Knowing what we can freely use, without permission, in our family histories ensures that we are not infringing on the rights of others. For example, did you know that if you watch your grandmother make her secret pasta sauce, writing down the ingredients and methods she used, you have created your own ‘literary work’ which is now protected by copyright? (Just don’t tell Granny!) How then does copyright law apply to published and unpublished works? What is fair use and moral rights? Can a distant cousin use information in her family book that I have researched? This presentation will examine those aspects of Australia’s copyright law which apply to family historians and discusses ways we can comply with the law.
