The Copyright Tribunal of Australia has jurisdiction to determine the rate of payment and other conditions of statutory licences and other licences administrated by copyright-collecting societies. The tribunal can determine different amounts in relation to different classes of materials copied, as well as in relation to different institutions or different classes of students of an institution. It can also declare a collecting society, the manner of paying royalty for copying musical works, recordkeeping and inspection of records under statutory licences and alternative dispute resolution. The Copyright Tribunal can also make the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission a party to proceedings before the tribunal where appropriate.
