A decade on from the Copyright and the Digital Economy report how far have we come and how far do we still have to go for copyright reform?

Nearly a decade has passed since the release of the Australian Law Reform Commission’s report on Copyright and the Digital Economy, how far have we come? And how far do we still have to go to achieve fair and flexible copyright exceptions to aid creativity, innovation and research?

This year’s ADA Copyright Forum will focus on the proposed Access Reforms set against the backdrop of key considerations including rapid technological advancements in AI, creators as users, and the importance of Indigenous Cultural Intellectual Property (ICIP).

The Australian Digital Alliance Copyright Forum is the peak event for discussion of pragmatic, creative copyright reform options that seek to ensure balance in copyright for the public interest. With a range of speakers and panels, the Forum is a must for anyone interested in the present and future of copyright in Australia.


Satellite events

In the lead up to this year’s forum we will be running a series of online satellite events exploring other copyright topics from international and local speakers. We will announce further details of these satellite events soon.
