New Zealand Universities have recently agreed to introduce mandatory e-reporting to replace the manual survey and ensure compliance with the terms of the licence agreed with Copyright Licensing New Zealand. In this paper I argue that digital technology provides the means to effectively manage copyright compliance in educational institutions and to counter its uncertainty. The paper considers the background that led to the decision to implement e-reporting and how that implementation is proceeding. It also considers the benefits to the parties, what the road blocks are and how these can be potentially overcome.
