Expanding Copyright Horizons - Creative Commons
Digital technologies are connecting people in
ways that were never before possible but that
brings challenges around copyright. It also adds
new meaning to concepts such as the Information
Commons and the value to society of unencumbered
access to all information. The Creative Commons
licences are a modern approach to balancing the
rights of the creator and public access. They
"allow" users to share, reuse and remix legally.
The Creative Commons Seminar on Saturday 27
October (full day held at the National Library,
Wellington) is your opportunity to gain a
greater understanding of the Creative Commons
approach to copyright licensing.
If you're in the creative, cultural, scientific
or educational space, are interested in securing
a return on your creative investment and marking
your work with the freedoms and access you want
it to carry, then this seminar is for you. It's
also for people who have an interest or
involvement in copyright and the direction the
new open content licensing is taking.
The free programme includes guest speaker Dr
Anne Fitzgerald, Brisbane-based intellectual
property and e-commerce lawyer and Adjunct
Professor at the School of Law, Queensland
University of Technology. As well as initiating
Australia's Going Digital series of seminars and
publications, Anne has written and presented
extensively on legal aspects of e-commerce,
multimedia and the Internet. The event will also
include industry & research sector workshops,
led by New Zealand experts, to discuss specific
issues, uses and concerns.
Register your interest now to
and to assist with planning please provide
details of your sector & area of interest eg
creative, research, education, government, legal
etc.Also check out the website
