Copyright Down Under: Developments in Copyright Law in Australia in the Last Two Years
In the world of copyright and intellectual property Australia is a relatively small player. Nevertheless, it has its own tradition of law making, a thriving creative and cultural sector, and is a net importer of intellectual property (“IP‿) in terms of both scholarly literature covering science, technology and social sciences, and also entertainment. Its size means that it has some interesting points of comparison with Nordic countries. These include not only the relative impact of its own export of IP, and dependency on the import of IP, but also the fact that its society is technologically advanced with a high degree of internet penetration and use of digital technology and digitally stored information and knowledge.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
