This article reviews a number of important changes to Australian copyright law in recent years, and in particular the Digital Agenda amendments, the introduction of moral rights and the proposed changes to the control of parallel importation. It evaluates the likely significance of these changes for the publishing industry in Australia and concludes the changes appear to have given copyright owners greater control over published material and may be changing the nature of Australian copyright law.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
