Media Now! seminar

On Tue 29 March 2016

It’s often said that the media spends too much time talking about itself, but for once it may be justified in doing so.  Media ownership regulation changes, new competitors challenging old business models, renewed talk of merging the public broadcasters and the sight of Shane Warne terrorising the people of Africa combine to make it the most exciting time to be talking about media.

Join a stellar panel of media experts to discuss the commercial and regulatory challenges and opportunities facing media today. Will ownership changes pass the Australian Parliament and what will happen if they do? Are current business models sustainable or how will they evolve? What’s the future for the local and international production sectors and how should they be funded? These are just some of the issues that will be explored at this timely seminar.

The panel includes:

  • Michelle Guthrie (in-coming CEO, ABC, MD, Agencies APAC Google, ex-MD Providence Equity, ex-CEO Star TV)
  • David Haslingden (CEO, RACAT Group, Director Ardent Leisure, ex-Chairman Network Nine, ex-COO Fox Networks Group)
  • Deanne Weir (Founder, WeirAnderson, Deputy Chair Screen Australia, Chair of Hoodlum and Ai- Media, ex Group Director Corporate Development, Austar Entertainment)

Copyright and the Digital Economy

On Thu 05 June 2014

The ALRC's Report on Copyright and the Digital Economy recommends a number of significant changes to Australian copyright law to meet the challenges of a complex and changing digital environment.

  • Does Australian copyright law need a principles based "fair use" exception to remain relevant?
  • Should third parties (such as cloud storage providers) who facilitate "fair uses" by others be given statutory safe harbours?
  • Do the existing time shifting and format shifting exceptions need to be replaced with a "private non-commercial" fair use exception?
  • Should the broadcasting exceptions and re-transmission rights be replaced with a more technology neutral approach?
  • Do the temporary reproductions exceptions need to be replaced with an ‘incidental or technical use’ fair use exception - to support technological advances in data mining, storage and network distribution?
  • Would such changes provide enough certainty to owners and users - and are they the best way to accommodate technological change, foster lawful innovation and encourage the creation of copyright works?

Professor Jill McKeough, Commissioner in charge of the ALRC's Inquiry into Copyright and the Digital Economy will address these and many other questions considered by the ALRC in this crucial report.
