March 2016 - Copyright reform: Spotlight Seminar

Copyright reform: Spotlight Seminar

Legal debate is raging over a proposal to relax copyright laws. Advocates of change argue a new ‘fair use’ exemption is essential for the digital age. Critics counter that looser copyright protections will weaken property rights and stymie creativity.

Hear an authority on copyright review the evidence about the chilling effect of copyright exceptions on creativity, innovation and investment.

Dr George Barker is Director of the Centre for Law and Economics at ANU and a visiting fellow at the London School of Economics. He has testified in Europe, America and Asia on intellectual property law.
