In June 2015, the Copyright Act was amended to allow content owners and exclusive licensees to apply to the Federal Court for an order requiring an ISP to take “reasonable steps” to disable access to an “online location”.  In February 2016, Village Roadshow, the US movie studios and Foxtel filed the first applications under the new legislation. The first decision of the Federal Court is about to be handed down.

The Communications and Media Law Association (CAMLA) and Baker McKenzie are holding a panel discussion to review the decision and discuss the implications of the judgment for content owners and ISPs.

The panel includes:

Andrew Stewart, Partner, Baker McKenzie
Professor Kimberlee Weatherall, Associate Dean, The University of Sydney
Timothy Webb, Partner, Clayton Utz

Thursday 2nd February at 6:15pm

Baker McKenzie
Level 27, 50 Bridge Street, SYDNEY
