New developments / legislation
A review of the Copyright Act was announced in June 2017.Submissions to an Issues Paper closed in April 2019 and an Options Paper is expected in early 2020. A principles-based approach to the review has been put to government from the creative sector. Implementation of the Marrakesh Treaty resulted in the removal of the commercial availability test.

The creative sector is included in a new government Industry Transformation Programme and work on implementing the sector's Action Plan (including specific industry/government projects) will commence in Q1 2020.
New developments / surveys and statistics
University e-reporting is progressing well. Other tertiary licensees are also beginning to report usage electronically.
Other new areas of development
E-learning : in response to multiple requests from tertiary training institutions, e-learning modules that provide copyright training for academic and non-academic staff and students are being developed. A module for school teachers and members of school Boards is also in development, along with a similar module for librarians.
