'Orphan works', copyright items whose owners one cannot readily identify to seek permission to use, have presented unresolved problems in copyright law in Australia and many other countries.

This workshop, part of a project supported by the Copyright Agency Ltd cultural fund, offers an opportunity to explore the nature of the problem, and discuss possible options which might meet with a broad consensus of support amongst diverse stakeholders.

A number of papers will be presented on the day or made available for it. An issues paper in preparation will take into account contributions from the workshop.

See the working draft Resources list [html]for 40 pages of relevant material, and Timeline.

See Flyer and draft program. See also Graham Greenleaf's presentation notes.


Entry is free. Please contact us for an invitation. If you are coming from off campus, please RSVP to feedback [at]
