Forum 2020 – Save the date and announcing our keynotes!

We are thrilled to announce that the 2020 ADA Copyright Forum will be held on Friday 6 March 2020 at the National Library of Australia.

A banner image for the Australian Digital Alliance Copyright Forum 2020. It features the theme for the Forum: 'Blurring Lines'. And it specifies the date of the event as Friday 6 March 2020 and the venue as the National Library of Australia. The background is a dark blue spray painted 'c in a circle' copyright sign.


We are also thrilled to announce our first speakers for the 2020 Forum:

Image of Prof Anupam Chander Prof Anupam Chander, Professor of Law at Georgetown University, and author of influential works such as How Law Made Silicon Valley and the Electronic Silk Road.
Image of Terri Janke Terri Janke, Wuthathi/Meriam woman, Solicitor Director of the award-winning Indigenous law firm Terri Janke and Company, and one of the most influential voices in Australia on Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP).

Both are legal experts particularly well qualified to provide insights on theme for this year’s Forum – the blurring lines around copyright.

For much of its long history copyright law has been just that – copyright law. But with the growing awareness around issues such as indigenous cultural rights, free speech and privacy, it is increasingly hard to keep copyright discussions siloed from other digital rights considerations. At this year’s Forum, we look at the way copyright is influencing, or being influenced by, its peers in the digital regulation debate.

Watch this space – more details, including registration, will be coming soon for Blurring Lines – the Australian Digital Alliance Copyright Forum 2020.
