Information sheets

Arts Law publishes a number of free information sheets. You may print a copy for a non-profit purpose, provided you print the whole information sheet and do not alter it in any way. Contact Arts Law to reproduce any information sheet for any other purpose (including for educational materials).

Additional information sheets for Indigenous artists and arts organisations or dealing with Indigenous legal issues are available on the Artists in the Black website.


Please refer to Arts Laws' disclaimer before using any of the information contained on this page or in the information sheets.

Notice: From 1.1.2011, the Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth) has been renamed the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) and is known as the Australian Consumer Law. Matters previously regulated by the Trade Practices Act and various State and Territory consumer laws are now governed by the Australian Consumer Law which is administered by the ACCC, state and territory consumer agencies and, in respect of financial services, by ASIC. As a result, all references to the Trade Practices Act and State and Territory fair trading legislation in Arts Law's publications should now be read as a reference to the Australian Consumer Law. Arts Law is in the process of updating its publications accordingly.
