Australian Copyright Law Reforms!

Well, this is kind of off-topic for my blog, but it is MY blog ;-)

Things like time-shifting (video TV programs to watch later) and format-shifting (copy old VHS tape to DVD, copy music tape to CD). Here are some links about the proposed reforms:

PS While adding my recent Poythress blog entry, I came across an interesting article by him on copyright: Copyrights and Copying - Why the Laws Should Be Changed. Now I have redeemed this entry with a more overtly theological gloss :-)
