Our first EPUB

In another first for the ALRC, the Copyright Issues Paper, Copyright and the Digital Economy, released earlier this month, was published not only in HTML and PDF, but also as an EPUB (or ebook)!

An EPUB is an open ebook format which can be read with a variety of different devices, including compatible ebook readers, tablet computers and smart phones. Some of the useful functions EPUB files and readers generally provide are:

  • improved search capacity across a publication
  • resizable text
  • annotation tools
  • bookmarking
  • the convenience of use in a mobile device

We would like to know what people think of the EPUB version. Any feedback we receive will help us determine whether publishing ALRC consultation documents as ebooks is a worthwhile course for us to pursue.

To download the EPUB, find out more, or leave feedback, see: Copyright and the Digital Economy (IP 42)- EPUB.
