In its recent IP report, the Productivity Commission has recommended that Australia adopt a fair use exception, in part because of the benefits it would provide for libraries and archives. This session brings together high profile local and world-renowned international experts to answer frequently asked questions about fair use, including:

Why do Australian libraries and archives need fair use?
How will it change the way we do things?
How will it help our clients?
Attend this session and be part of the global discussion.
