Reading is my favourite pastime, so I support my country's writers. Also, my husband is a writer and will lose royalties.

It's obviously not a good thing for Australian authors.

As an author I know first hand how difficult it is to get published, and earn a living wage. Government should uphold our right to income from our work; and not seek to erode those royalties with their policies. Stories are vital to a healthy society, without them we lose our history and sense of place. Australian authors should be shown as much regard for their work as others in the developed world.

Its an unfair treat to the author if they cant have credit for their work in their own lifetime.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I read Save Oz Stories where our admired Australian authors alerted us of the need for protection.
