Symposium and Consultation

hosted by
Phillips Fox and

The Baker & McKenzie Cyberspace Law and Policy Centre,
UNSW Law Faculty

Thursday 21 August 2003
5:00 - 7:30 PM


In recent years, the copyright in the digital domain has raised increasingly complex issues. The Digital Agenda Revisited symposium reviews these issues in the context of a 3 year review of the Copyright (Digital Agenda) Act 2000 (Cth).

As government and industry attempt to grapple with these issues, it is important to consider public interest aspects of digital copyright, including concerns about enforcement, liability and the rights of copyright users.

In relation to future approaches, law firm Phillips Fox are releasing four issues papers on this issue as part of their work for AGs. This invitation-only symposium canvasses public interest concerns about the present digital copyright framework, and future developments. Some interesting perspectives on these concerns will be found in presentations and papers.
