Developments in broadband communications, digitalisation, convergence and globalisation raise serious implications for all regulatory regimes - especially that of the law of copyright. Following an analysis of each of the four factors, this paper examines the nature of digital material and the rights over such material conferred by the copyright regime. Particular consideration is given to the recent Copyright Amendment (Digital Agenda) Act 2000 (Digital Agenda Act) reforms. Finally possible technological, commercial and legislative solutions to the challenges of the digital domain are discussed.
