The ABF Party supports the establishment of an industry regulator to work with event organisers to aid in the delivery of safer live music events. We see the Australian live music industry as an important partner in our Better Drug Reform Policy.
|Australian Conservatives||All states||Key Points:|
Australian Conservatives recognise the importance of the National Broadcaster to many Australians, particularly those located in rural and remote communities.
We also recognise that a diversified and financially sustainable media industry is important for all Australians.
Australian Conservatives will merge the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) and Special Broadcasting Service (SBS).
We will require the new, merged broadcaster to strictly adhere to enhanced charter obligations of balance and a diversity of views.
We will ensure that it puts a greater emphasis on rural and regional broadcasting and alleviating other important gaps in commercial media coverage.
Merge and reform
The media sector in Australia and around the world is undergoing significant disruption and national, taxpayer-funded broadcasting cannot be insulated from these changes.
Australian Conservatives will merge the ABC and SBS into a single, consolidated broadcaster saving taxpayers over $1 billion per year with the savings dedicated to debt reduction.
Greater focus on the bush
Australian Conservatives will give the consolidated broadcaster a greater rural and regional focus – to ensure that the few remaining gaps in the Australian media landscape, including providing critical information during natural disasters and emergencies, are well-covered.
We will reform the board arrangements and Charter of the current ABC and ensure that the consolidated broadcaster is truly impartial, unbiased and presents a diversity of views representative of the Australian nation.
Reduced scope and presence
Australian Conservatives will limit the consolidated broadcaster to two TV stations – covering news, current affairs, drama and entertainment.
We will limit the consolidated broadcaster to two radio stations available nationally with local and national content.
Further, Australian Conservatives will limit the provision of online services by the consolidated broadcaster to on-demand viewing of the local news, entertainment and current affairs programs produced by the broadcaster.
These changes will save taxpayers over $1 billion per annum which will be used to repay the national debt. They will further strengthen the diversity of the media market by limiting the size, scope and reach of government-funded broadcasting.
|Australian Democrats||NSW, SA, Vic||✓|
|Australian Labor Party||All states and territories||Labor does not simply adopt an “arts policy”. Both Paul Keating’s Creative Nation and Julia Gillard’s Creative Australia were described as cultural policies. Thisis because of Labor’s deep conviction that the arts represents so much more than entertainment.|
The arts drive how we find our place here, how we learn about each other and how the world understands us. A cultural policy allows the power of the arts to reach well beyond official arts bodies to the lives and experiences of every Australian.
The arts are not only relevant to education, health, or to our understanding of First Nations and appreciation of modern multicultural Australia. The arts also challenge and inspire us.
Our artists affect how we feel. Our literature, theatre and films can take us through a rollercoaster of emotion. Music can shift our emotions by the second bar. Visual art can capture us at the first glance.
[...] Labor will renew Creative Australia with a government wide approach to the sector. Our new cultural policy will be based on the same five themes as Creative Australia:
• First Nations.
• Our diversity.
• Our artists.
• Our institutions.
• Communication to each other and the world.
A Shorten Labor Government will value our artists, support our creativity, and cherish our stories.
Culture is not created by government, but enabled by it.

|Labor is united in its belief that the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) and the Special Broadcasting Service (SBS), including National Indigenous Television (NITV), are among Australia’s most important public institutions. Labor is committed to maintaining the ABC and SBS as independent and comprehensive national broadcasters, never to be privatised.|
To support Australian screen content, Labor will provide $40 million to the ABC for Australian content across scripted drama, comedy, children’s and music and $20 million to SBS for Australian content, increasing the percentage of Australian content on the SBS main channel.
Labor will also reverse the Liberals’ $83.7 million unfair cut to the ABC, as well as guarantee funding certainty over the next ABC budget cycle.
In addition, Labor will provide $15 million to the ABC to:

A Shorten Labor Government will restore funding to the Australia Council and undo the Brandis cuts. Labor will save the Australia Council by restoring funding cut by
the Abbott-Turnbull-Morrison Government, providing an initial addition of $37.5 million over the forward estimates and maintaining this funding increase – totalling a commitment of over $112 million. An additional $2 million will also be provided to extend the contemporary music touring program to support national touring by Australian musicians.
• $3 million to assist existing state based First Nations’ theatre companies and dance groups to grow and apply to become major performing arts organisations. This funding would be made available with the expectation that state governments would also contribute.

|Australian Progressives||ACT, Qld, SA||✓|
|Australian Workers Party||NSW, Qld, Vic||Australia's art, culture and entertainment industries are a reflection of who we are, where we have been and where will go.|
The arts are an integral and important stage for a nation to showcase and express its culture, creativity and passion for life in a way that is accessible and enables the population to experience and feel these expressions in a collective, as well as personal way.
The importance of the arts should not be underestimated. Australia has been reflected though all aspects of the arts and it has made us a better nation.
The high reputation for quality of our arts was built over decades. In the 1970s and 1980s we saw the renaissance of our film industry, we saw the boom of our music scene and we showcased our country to the world to both commercial and artistic success.
Unfortunately, we have seen a waning of commitment from successive governments towards the arts. In a market place such as ours, government commitment is vital to propel our cultural talents to greater heights. Reliance upon the marketplace can bring with it insecurities that can leave a creative industry struggling for decades.
The AWP commits itself to advocating for the arts community. We see the value, culturally and commercially of sustaining supports to the arts.
We also want to see the marketplace do the right thing for our performers, artists and technicians. We propose sustained avenues of supports for contractual advice for those involved; fair rates of pay and greater education for people who are new to the arts industries, so they can have their rights at work protected by the union movement and the protections of workplace laws. In short, we do not want any worker in the arts community to be ripped off by unscrupulous operators who take advantage of creative passion and skill.
We would also support:
- greater scrutiny of overseas investors and producers to maintain the integrity of local employment opportunities in foreign investment projects. Quotas for Australian talent or skills are important to maintain opportunities and expertise building.
- a greater commitment to financial supports for local projects through grants systems, government loans and project buy-ins and financial advisories for arts related projects.
- better guidance, education and training for funded arts councils and advisory bodies so they can be better able to support the arts.
- better educational supports for students of the arts; in conjunction with mainstream education funding, we would advocate for subsidies and scholarships for exceptional talent and ideas.
- greater supports to Indigenous artists in relation to advise to protect commercial integrity and creative rights; to maintain the integrity between artistic success and commercial success.
- increased funding for new technologies in the arts field, including research grants for projects to expand opportunities in new directions.
- a social audit to ascertain the value to the Australian community and economy of our arts industry. This would help map out needs and government assistance planning in financial terms and would also reflect the true societal and cultural value of our arts community.

A complete subordination of Australia's media landscape to commercial interests and the political agendas of their owners should be resisted by anyone who supports independent media and the growth of Australian culture.|
Repeal the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth) and replace it with a new Creative Works Act
Institute a creative right that lasts 15 years from date of publication. This will provide adequate economic protection while ensuring the growth of a vibrant public domain.
Provide that rights in unpublished works will terminate 15 years after the death of the creator, to allow sufficient time and incentive for the works to be published.
Abolish the distinction between 'works' and 'subject matter other than works'.
Institute a uniform duration for creative rights regardless of the type of work, and all existing types of work will continue to be protected.
Restrict creative rights to commercial uses of a work. This will maximise the dissemination of culture and encourage derivative works, as well as protect privacy and freedom of speech.
Allow creative rights held by individuals to be transferable upon their death, but the duration of the rights will not exceed 15 years from publication.
Allow creative rights held by corporate entities to be bought and sold, or transferred on liquidation, but the duration of the rights will not exceed 15 years from publication.
Provide that creative rights will always remain with the creator except where the work has been created under a contract that specifies alternative arrangements.
Permit exclusive licences for a maximum duration of five years to allow creators to periodically renegotiate the terms to be more favourable to them.
Afford no protection for materials produced by or as a function of government, as they belong to the public.
Protect software under separate legislation, similar to the way circuit layouts are currently protected.
Provide that programming made available online by radio stations will be considered a broadcast for licensing purposes.

|Secular Party of Australia||Vic||Intellectual property|
The Secular Party recognises that intellectual property rights protect the interests of creators and provide incentives for innovation. However property rights should not be derived from non-creative findings. Indigenous communities should maintain ownership of innovations derived from their custodial knowledge, and patents derived from the human genome, the custodial property of us all, should be limited.
Recognising that such rights are a reciprocal arrangement, and the need for ideas to return to the public domain, our policy is that copyright not be extended to more than 50 years after the author’s or creator’s death (as compared to the current 70 years).
Intellectual property rights should not subvert long-held understandings about what ‘ownership’ means. They should not limit an owner’s freedom to use and copy purchased items on a continued, private and non-commercial basis.
|Seniors United Party of Australia||NSW||10. Establishment of a Seniors TV Channel|
The Seniors United Party of Australia has today called for the establishment of a publicly funded and run “seniors” TV channel to be established by 2020 along the lines of similar to the NITV, SBS, ABC2, and radio 2JJJ.
The station to have specific programming for seniors from organisations like ACOSS, NCOSS from each state, the Council of the Aging, the Federal and State Departments of Aging, Seniors Australia, the Combined Pensioners & Superannuants Association, documentaries on health issues for the aged, cooking for seniors, nutrition, exercise and lifestyle programs for the aged, hobbies, etc.

• Commission a ‘Living Arts’ fund
• Establish and fund a Creativity Commission
• Invest in Australian content and creativity
• Create an artistic partnership program to put working artists in classrooms alongside teachers and students
• Invest in our video game development industry
