Hi roket,
How good is your German?
If you are competent enough to cope with legal German you can find the Austrian statute (Urheberrechtsgesetz) here* or if you prefer a more readable overview, try the entry.
If you are interested in a specific topic within the Austrian copyright law, and your German is a bit rusty, you may find the entries for Austria in this English language website helpful.

* Although the Austrian Federal Government website ( provides English translations for many of their federal laws, the Urheberrechtsgesetz does not appear to be among them.
Advice or comment provided here is not and does not purport to be legal advice as defined by s.12 of Legal Services Act 2007
