Mobile Phones At Concerts OK!

Australians can take their video mobile phones into concerts without fear of criminal sanctions, the federal Government has announced.

Under amendments to federal copyright laws announced today, it will no longer be a criminal offence to take a devices capable of audio-visual recording to a live entertainment venue and record the performance without permission.
The announcement outlined the Federal Government's response to a Senate committee report which had recommended changes to the Copyright Amendment Bill, 2006.

The committee recommended that the government reduce the scope of the sections of the legislation pertaining to recording devices so that "ordinary Australians" were not affected.
