Forum 2017

With the final report of the Productivity Commission’s Inquiry into Australia’s IP Framework echoing the ALRC’s recommendation to adopt fair use, debate on flexibility and the role of exceptions in our copyright system is set to dominate the copyright discussions in Australia in 2017.

This debate brings with it a lot of speculation – how does fair use actually operate? What would it mean for Australian users? What about creators – how do we design a system that meets all their needs? What are the global trends?

To answer these questions and more the ADA is bringing together experts from around the world – experts who have experience working with fair use and flexible copyright exceptions – for one day in Canberra on 24 February 2017.
