COPYRIGHT ACT 1968 - SECT 195AHC

Act of false attribution of performership of altered recorded performance

             (1)  If the work is a recorded performance that has been altered by a person other than a performer in the performance, it is an act of false attribution of performership in relation to the performer to deal with a copy of the recorded performance as so altered, as being a copy of the unaltered recorded performance, if, to the knowledge of the attributor, the copy of the recorded performance is not a copy of the unaltered recorded performance.

             (2)  Subsection (1) does not apply if:

                     (a)  the effect of the alteration is insubstantial; or

                     (b)  the alteration was required by law to be made, or was otherwise necessary to avoid a breach of any law.
