Australian schools are paying millions every year to access free online materials.

Under a compulsory license schools in Australia pay for a licence to copy materials such as books and journals without copyright permission.

As the internet is becoming an increasingly important resource in schools an inquiry is being held into copyright licences which could see a complete overhaul of the system.
