your function – whether it be a birthday party, a wedding reception or corporate event

I bought a legitimate CD. Can I copy tracks from the purchased CD onto an iPod or a blank CD for use in my function or at my function centre?

The purchase of a CD only gives you the right to own the physical disc, to play it privately, and to pass on the same physical disc to another person. This means that copying the music from a CD including onto an iPod, without the permission of all relevant copyright owners, is an infringement of copyright except in very limited circumstances. The Copyright Act allows you to “format shift” music for personal use, for example, to copy from CD format to MP3 format in certain limited situations. However, this does not extend to use of the music on commercial premises.

I operate a function centre. Can I be held responsible for any pirate music played on the premises?

Yes, as the venue operator you may be held liable for authorising copyright infringement if pirated music is played on your premises. This might include iPods that are loaded with illegally downloaded music or DJs who are using digital music devices, such as computers, without the relevant reproduction licences in place. As the venue operator, it is also your responsibility to obtain public performance licences from APRA and PPCA (or the relevant copyright owner).

Can I be fined or jailed for music piracy?

Music pirates can be fined up to $60,500 and up to 5 years imprisonment for each offence. For companies the fines are up to 5 times as much. Under changes to the Copyright Act the police can also issue an on-the-spot fine of $1320 and seize pirate music.

Traffic Control In Queensland

When the Traffic controller Puts there hand up to get you to stop then points back down the road. The traffic controller is pointing at a traffic cone or Bollard 10 metres back down the road from them that you should stop at.

I have seen some traffic controllers  pointing for year and have only just found out what they have been pointing at and what it meant. You would think it should be in the road rules so you would know to stop 10 meters from the traffic controller. or have a sign there saying stop here.
