There are many legal rights and rules that govern original material in Australia and on the internet. These help protect content.
Copyright is important to authors. Creators deserve to be rewarded for their creative work and copyright law is fundamental to ensuring this, as well as fostering future creativity.
While protecting my rights as owner and creator of the content on CairnsBlog, I also encourage others to make use of this content in limited, but agreed ways.
That's why newspapers are allowed to include short quotations from "copyright" books in their reviews.
