As you can see we’ve added some exciting new speakers, including:
- Trina Ha of the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore, to tell us about the future-proofing recommendations of their recently released Copyright Review Report;
- James Ting-Edwards of InternetNZ and Mandy Henk of Tohatoha Aotearoa Commons, giving us the latest on New Zealand’s own review process;
- Juliet Rogers, CEO of the Australian Society of Authors, who will join Professor Kimberlee Weatherall and Dr Rebecca Giblin to reflect on what Australian copyright reform might, and should, look like over the next 20 years;
- Professor Graham Greenleaf, leading our celebration of the public domain and the vital role it plays in the copyright ecosystem; and
- Artists Peter Drew and Sari Braithwaite, who will reflect on the power and challenge of using archival material in their work.
Unfortunately, with all this good news comes the sad news that EU Parliamentarian Julia Reda will no longer be able to join us in person to present her views on the controversial copyright reforms currently being debated in Europe – because she will be in Brussels voting on those very reforms. However, Ms Reda will still be providing her presentation “This Upload is Not Available in Your Country” remotely, including an interactive session to engage with attendees.
Even with this slight change, this year’s Forum, as usual, promises to be a day packed full of insight and reflection on the past, present and future of copyright in Australia and globally. We’re all looking forward to the copyright policy goodness.
