Do I need to acknowledge the source of the work I am copying?



The Copyright Act 2021 introduced a new right to be identified. Anyone who uses an authorial work (i.e. a literary, dramatic, musical, or artistic work) or a performance in public (e.g. by sharing it online, publishing it, or including it in corporate collaterals) must identify its creator or performer.

This identification must be clear and reasonably prominent, and in the manner that the creator or performer wishes to be identified (e.g. the creator or performer may require the use of a pseudonym instead of their name).

Please refer to the factsheet on the new Copyright Act 2021 for more information.
