An Australian company has produced a device that it claims can reduce copyright infringement by stopping the copying of copyrighted works.
The company behind the device is called Creative Works Creative Safety.
The device is said to work by preventing the copying and re-using of copyrighted material.
The copyright law in Australia is divided into three tiers: copyright owners, authors and copyright holders.
The Copyright Act requires that if a copyright holder sells a book, film, song or other creative work, it must pay a royalty to the copyright holder.
If a copyright owner does not pay the royalty, the copyright owner is considered to have infringed the copyright.
In this case, the Copyright Tribunal decides whether the copyright is infringed.
If the copyright owners are found to have breached copyright law, the Tribunal can issue a finding of copyright infringement.
The first step of the Copyright Enforcement Act requires the Copyright Office to file a formal notice to the owner of the work, giving them 72 hours to respond.
If they do not respond within 72 hours, the action will proceed.
In the case of the Creative Works device, Creative Works has taken a different approach.
The product is said be able to prevent the copying or re-use of copyrighted work.
Creative Works has said it is the first device to work that way.
“This innovative product will help to ensure copyright owners don’t have to defend themselves against their own employees,” said the company in a statement.
“If the owner cannot defend themselves, they can go to a public tribunal where they can win.”
The device can be bought for $10 from Creative Works.
