Campaigns

Fair Use

In February 2017, the ASA made a submission to the Government arguing against the introduction of "fair use".

Parallel Importation

Read about the ASA and Books Create campaign. The first time the book industry has spoken with one voice on the issue of territorial copyright.

Fair Contracts

The ASA and APA have been working together on a publishers' code of conduct, based on many of the principles of Fair Contacts.

Australia Council Funding

The ASA advocates the abolition of Catalyst and a full restoration of funding to the Australia Council.

Digital Lending Right

We at the ASA urge the government to make Digital Lending Right a reality for Australia's authors and publishers.

Tax Free Prizes and Grants

The Prime Minister's Literary Awards are already awarded free from tax. We at the ASA believe this concession should be extended to all major literary prizes and grants.
