The Commonwealth claims copyright on all material written by its employees in the course of their employment whether published or unpublished. Responsibility for copyright administration is divided as follows:

  1. the responsible author body administers copyright for print material that is not published;
  2. Commonwealth Copyright Administration administers copyright for print material that is published;
  3. requests to reproduce copyrights administered by the High Court of Australia should be directed to the Registrar, High Court of Australia.

The Commonwealth of Australia asserts its copyright in all publications and all published material produced by Commonwealth author organisations. Government and Parliamentary departments and many agencies, unless specifically provided for under any establishing/enabling legislation, cannot own copyright.

Australia is a signatory to two international copyright conventions, the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works, and the Universal Copyright Convention. The Berne Convention provides that a work, created by an author in a country which is party to the convention is accorded the same protection in member countries. There is no requirement for authors to complete any formalities to receive such protection.

If rights are to be pursued in member states under the Universal Copyright Convention, all copies of a work published with the authority of the copyright owner are required to include the symbol - accompanied by the name of the copyright owner and year of publication. It should be in a manner and location that enables reasonable notice of the claim of copyright. The Commonwealth of Australia conforms to this requirement.

The Acting Wisely web site makes some use of data that only indirectly identifies users. We take great care with practices that affect personal privacy. As a general rule, we do not collect or record data that directly identifies users.

We will only record your email address if you send us a message. It will only be used for the purpose for which it was provided and will not be added to a mailing list unless that is the purpose of the message.

The data referred to above is generated by the systems you are accessing, and stored in system logs. These logs are preserved and archived for possible future use.

A cookie is a very small text file placed onto your computer when you visit a Web site. A cookie can be 'persistent' (meaning that it is written to a permanent file on your hard disk) or 'session-only' (in which case the cookie is deleted at the end of your browsing session).

Cookies are not generally used on the Parliament's site. The exception to this is the search facility, which has been built to use only temporary 'session ID' cookies. One cookie is created at the beginning of the user's search session and discarded at its conclusion. The cookie is not used to collect or store any information about the user, only to allocate a temporary identifier to the search session.

Without such a session ID, the user would lose the entire search context each time a new web page is visited during a search session e.g. by viewing a document retrieved by a search. If cookies are disabled, the search program could not provide more than a very basic functionality - far less than is expected by our users.

Our live broadcasts do not use cookies.
