Time-shifting: recording from TV and radio for later private use

It is permissible to record a television or radio program to watch or listen to at a later time, but only if the recording is made solely for private and domestic use, and then only for watching or listening to the program at a more convenient time. The new exception does not apply to podcasts or webcasts (except programs streamed simultaneously with a broadcast by a 'traditional' broadcaster such as the ABC, SBS or one of the commercial free-to-air broadcasters). The copied material will become an infringing copy if it is later commercially traded or played or shown in public or broadcast. Nor does the above permissibility extend to recording a broadcast and keeping it indefinitely in a collection of films or sound recordings for repeated use.
