Lunchtime Seminar – Copyright – Is that fair?

 How do I know if this is “fair use”?

The Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC) has recommended a new “fair use” exception, which would be a defence to copyright infringement. This presentation highlights 27 rules of thumb, and gives examples, indicating which uses of copyright material will be fair, according to the ALRC. It will also explore the following questions:

        • What does the ALRC report say about libraries and archives, mass digitisation, data mining, orphan works and technology?
        • What was NOT covered in the ALRC’s report?
        • What is the government likely to do with the report?

The session will be presented by Rufina Cheung. Rufina edits and writes for CCH’s Australian Industrial & Intellectual Property and Australian Contract Law Reporter. Rufina has worked in the NSW Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (criminal law), NSW Crown Solicitor’s Office (administrative law) and NSW Attorney General’s Department (Legislation and Policy Division).

If you are not a financial member of ALLA you are still welcome to come to the CPD session, the cost is $10 to be paid on the day.
