Tony Millett, Chair of the LIANZA Standing Committee on Copyright, has been interviewed a number of times in the media this week where he outlines the implications for libraries from the new Copyright Act.
Follow the links below to Tony's interviews:
- NZ Herald (Wed 18th May)- 95 bfm radio podcast (Wed 18th)- TV3 News website (Fri 20th May)- Computerworld (Mon 23rd May)
This media coverage is great exposure for LIANZA and the Association would like to thank Tony and the rest of the Committee fortheir hard work on this issue.
Stay tuned, Tony will be updating the profession on this issue in the next issue of Library Life.
A significant number of Libraries across the country offer free internet access as part of the Aotearoa People's Network, which was established in 2007 as a part of the Government's digital policy. It is somewhat ironic another Government policy threatens to shut this down. Again the disdavantaged lose out. It will also cause a headache and increase internet costs for libraries to even start to try and monitor internet access. -Kim
