    Abstract

    The Franki Committee reported in 1976 on a new technological means of disseminating information. It was tasked: To examine the question of the reprographic reproduction of works protected by copyright in Australia and to recommend any alterations to the Australian copyright law and any other measures it may consider necessary to effect a proper balance of interest between owners of copyright and users of copyright material in respect of reprographic reproduction. The term ‘reprographic reproduction’ includes any system or technique by which facsimile reproductions are made in any size or form. The Committee made over 30 recommendations for reform of the Copyright Act. I propose to concentrate on the two most significant ones. Both recommendations raise 21st century issues and illustrate the perennial problem in finding an equitable balance of interests in the law between owners of copyright and users of copyright material in response to technological change.
