Video transcript: Review of the Copyright Act 1994


Kia ora tātou, my name’s Marcus Smith and with me are Dmitry, Warren, and Liam. These are some of the people working with me on the review of the Copyright Act.

We’re now consulting publicly on an Issues Paper so that you can help us work out how well New Zealand’s Copyright Act is working and better understand the nature of any problems with it.


We’ll be using the next 4 months to get a range of perspectives on copyright, beginning with workshops in Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch.


Take a look at the Issues Paper. It summarises what we’ve already heard from those involved with copyright and shows you what we need to understand better.
