    Abstract

    This article follows the preceding article on the analysis of the origins and scope of the
    prerogative right of the Crown to print and publish certain works in England. This
    article explores the extent to which those works are presently subject to the prerogative
    right of the Crown to print and publish in Australia. The prerogative right is expressly
    preserved by s 8A(1) of the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth).
    There is clear case law authority in Australia for the recognition of the prerogative right
    of the Crown over the printing and publication of statutes. The article explores the
    scope of the right in Australia, the interrelationship of the rights in a federal system such
    as the extent to which the prerogative right is enforceable in other jurisdictions and the
    impact of the introduction of s 8A(2) of the Copyright Act on the prerogative right.
