These Regulations amend the Copyright Regulations 1969 to prescribe the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), Australian National University Archives Program (ANU), and Special Broadcasting Service Corporation (SBS) as key cultural institutions. Sections 51B, 110BA, and 112AA of the Copyright Act 1968 enable key cultural institutions to make up to three preservation copies of relevant works that are of historical or cultural significance to Australia. A key cultural institution is defined as a body that has the function of developing and maintaining a collection under Commonwealth or State law, or has been prescribed by the regulations. The new Schedule 5 amends the Copyright Regulations 1968 to prescribe the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, the Australian National University Archives Program (ANU), and the Special Broadcasting Services Corporation as key cultural institutions for the purposes of subparagraphs 51B(1)(a)(ii), 110BA(1)(a)(ii) and 112AA(1)(a)(ii) of the Copyright Act 1968.
