The Productivity Commission’s IP report has once again brought fair use and flexibility to the fore in the Australian copyright debate. The PC says it is important for productivity and innovation, others say it means uncertainty for creators. This is a rare opportunity to hear the world’s leading experts on fair use to discuss how it works in practice, what it would mean for Australians, and why there is a global trend towards more flexibility in copyright.

Our distinguished panel:

Professor Patricia Aufderheide, University Professor, School of Communication, American University and Fulbright Scholar 2017
Professor Sean Flynn, Associate Director, Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property Professorial Lecturer in Residence, American University
Professor Michael Geist, Chair of Internet & E-commerce Law, University of Ottawa
