Reform of Australia’s copyright system has been in a continuous state of flux for the past decade. Modernisation of the copyright system is urgently needed to unlock the true potential to aid innovation, creativity and research in Australia. Flexible and fair copyright exceptions are needed to achieve this balance. Alongside this, the challenges and opportunities brought on by rapidly evolving artificial intelligence technologies, and the role that copyright plays, are still emerging.
The conference will feature a keynote presentation from Matthew Sag, Professor of Law and Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Data Science at Emory University Law School. We will also be joined via video conference by Boris Eldagsen, a Berlin-based photomedia artist, and Dr Carys Craig, Associate Dean (Research & Institutional Relations) and an Associate Professor at Osgoode Hall Law School, York University, in Toronto, Canada. Local speakers include Patricia Adjie, Dr Kylie Pappalardo & Professor Kimberlee Wetherall.
