ADA Copyright Forum 2018 - Flexible and Adaptable: the Future of Copyright

2017 was an exciting year for copyright, with new laws, new regulations and a commitment by the government to “a modernised copyright exceptions framework that keeps pace with technological advances and is flexible to adapt to future changes.”

But what is a modern copyright framework in 2018 and beyond? What are others doing globally to modernise their systems? And what do we need here – now and in the future?

This year's ADA Copyright Forum will focus on the commitment to modernisation, what it will mean in practice, and what we need it to mean for Australia.

The ADA Forum is the peak event for discussion of creative, workable copyright reform options to promote a fairer copyright balance for creators and the broader public. With a range of speakers and panels, the Forum is a must for anyone interested in the present and future of copyright in Australia and the region.
