Mr GLYNN (Angas) .- I should like to direct the Minister's atention to section 13 of the Copyright Act of 1905, which provides -

The copyright in a book means the exclusive right to do, or authorize another person to do, all or any of the following things - which it then proceeds to enumerate. I do not think that that provision is contained in the Imperial Copyright Act, and if I recollect rightly, we had a big fight upon it. In this clause, the same principle seems to be adopted in regard to copyright in designs. It declares that a man must manufacture in Australia or he will not be entitled to the use of his design.
