Without assuming prior legal knowledge, books in the Directions series introduce and guide readers through key points of law and legal debate. Questions, diagrams, and exercises help readers to engage fully with each subject and check their understanding as they progress. This chapter discusses issues in copyright infringement. It looks at the arguments that may be raised by parties to a copyright infringement action. It explains the nature of the action for copyright infringement; the types of conduct which amount to primary infringement and secondary infringement of copyright; the application of the principal defences known as ‘fair dealing’ in copyright; and other major statutory and non-statutory defences to copyright infringement.
