It is my understanding that under Australian copyright law, for the purposes of private home use and review purposes, the recording of broadcast material is not criminal. However, it is an offence to externally duplicate or disseminate such material under all circumstances, in whole or in part.

All privately recorded material in the Audiotek collection is merely compiled from sources already licenced to Audiotek (e.g. CD) or falls into the recorded broadcast category described above. I cannot legally fill requests for materials from the Audiotek library, as this would represent a criminal breach of copyright. However, it may be possible for me to purchase additional licences on your behalf (e.g. the purchase of original CDs.)
