Illustrative Uses — if permitted or not

A rehabilitation provider has a set of templates which its staff and contractors use to save time when writing their own reports. Is it all right to put earnings figures and other data for one or more occupations into a template of this kind? No is the short answer. It can only be done lawfully with the prior written permission of the copyright owner and an acknowledgement to that effect included in the template and the professional’s report.

I want to include a copy of the Report in my own report in a medico-legal case. Is that a permitted use? Yes, attaching a copy, even of the whole Report, is in this instance a permitted fair use in Australian copyright law, coming under the broad heading of public administration.

My employer has asked me to train new staff in vocational assessments. Am I allowed to make or distribute a printed or digital copy of the Report for training purposes? This is not a permitted use, unless you obtain written permission from the copyright owner beforehand. The fair use exceptions for educational purposes pertain to educational institutions.

In my thesis I need to quote the earnings figures and job numbers. Is that okay? Yes, this is a straight-forward fair use for the purpose of research and study.

A not-for-profit organisation wants to help unemployed and disadvantaged workers to improve their career prospects by compiling sound statistics on employment and earnings. Can they legitimately quote the earnings or other statistics in print and digital copies they create or just on their website? The hard answer is no to all of these uses, because all are publications of copyright material. However, the copyright owner’s permission is likely to be given, but this must be obtained in writing prior to the proposed publication/s.

To save money, I share the costs of Reports with another contractor who is a friend, and we give each other (and no-one else) a copy. Is this a fair use, seeing employers won’t pay for the necessary earnings figures for our work? Even such a limited kind of copying is not a permitted use of the earnings figures. The copying is for commercial purposes, and if the earnings figures are included in a report identified to a third party, it too would be in breach of copyright law.

Our company is thinking of putting the earnings figures and other statistics and data from Reports in its in-house database that brings together handy information for staff. Is this a problem? It is, because it is not a permitted fair use under the Copyright Act 1968. It is a breach of the copyright owner’s rights, when express prior permission has not been obtained.
