Copyright seminar – ALRC inquiry into Copyright and the Digital Economy
July 16, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This event will by jointly hosted by CAMLA and the Copyright Society. It will include a panel discussion and audience Q&A on the impact of the recommendations in the ALRC’s Discussion Paper regarding “Copyright and the Digital Economy” may have on the following media sectors:
Free to air television
Internet and online
Each of our panellists will provide a brief overview of some key recommendations for these sectors and their individual insights on the potential impact of such recommendations. The event will take an industry rather than academic approach and is intended to provide CAMLA and Copyright Society members with insight into how industry participants are grappling with the issues under review.
CAMLA and the Copyright Society hope that this event will be helpful for everyone that is reviewing and responding to the ALRC Discussion Paper by creating a forum for discussion of how the recommendations might affect your organisation or clients.
The seminar will be chaired by John Fairbairn, Partner, Minter Ellison Lawyers, and will feature the following panellists:
