Digitisation plays a major role in preserving the information artefact. Works held in national archives, galleries, libraries and museums worldwide are increasingly being digitised, thereby generating greater financial rewards for copyright owners through the use of licensing schemes while also providing greater public access to a diverse array of material in its original form. However, mass digitisation challenges the established norms of copyright through the wholesale copying of works, and their storage in cloud environments. This article explores how Australia and New Zealand are responding to mass digitisation, addressing copyright owners’ rights to protect their interests and the right of the public to access those works.
