The Australian Copyright Act 2006

art or project for commercial use of their own, making full profit. The
Copyright Act attempts to stop copyright infringements by enforcing penalties
for those who make a copy of their own of another’s work for the intent of
selling, hiring or making profit, the act of selling their own copy, importing
it from another country and/or performing a piece of art such as literature, music
and images. Due to the technological advances the Act had to be changed to

covering new advances and penalise those who copy with intent of infringements.
