I just read an article from Australian Financial Review on copyright 
and the FTA.  AFR Friday 2004/7/9 P81.

Discusses changes in legislation to bring Australia into line with US 
copyright law (or at least the parts beneficial to large companies and 
copyright owners.)  We apparently don't get originality, fair use etc.  
The Government is pushing the senate to pass in August.
