Australia's Legal Deposit requirement, which compels publishers to send copies of all books to the National Library, may be extended to digital works.

The potential extension of the Legal Deposit is discussed in a new Consultation Paper issued by the Federal Attorney General's Department.

The current scheme is a decidedly pre-digital arrangement, as it says Legal Deposit applies to any “book, periodical, newspaper, pamphlet, sheet of letter-press, sheet of music, map, plan, chart or table, being a literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work."
