In recent times, copyright law globally has undergone radical changes to take account of the advancement of technology. This paper will argue that in Australia some of the legislative changes regarding technological protection measures (‘TPM’) have a number of unintended consequences. It will be argued that the legislators have over stepped the mark by creating a sui generis protection in favour of copyright owners, which can best be described as a mutant digital copyright.

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.
