Current Australian copyright law states that if a school or individual owns a publication, that 10% of that publication may be copied on any one day. This means on subsequent days, additional 10% amounts of the title can also be copied. As the Australian copyright law stands, schools or individuals who have purchased PLD titles (i.e. black-line masters, flip books, activity books or charts) are within their rights to copy the entire publication over a 10 day period.

PLD requests in fairness that if multiple copies are being made of the one publication, that the school purchase additional copies.

For further detail, please refer to the PLD copyright guidelines for further information:

Below is a sample of the copyright information contained within the PLD titles:
