In the digital world of 2019, copyright is more important than ever.
As part of her ongoing research in the fields of copyright and intellectual property, IPS Research Manager Dr Katie will be reaching across international boundaries.
Dr Katie and her team will be working closely researchers from Canada and the UK to strengthen relationships between organisations in Australia, Canada and the UK, and to more closely align copyright surveys and research across those international boundaries.
Copyright concerns vary across the three regions – for example the UK has a strong focus on infringements of online magazines, while Australia is more focussed on movies and TV shows.
All three regions will have a strong focus on live sporting events, with the intention of taking a proactive approach to exploring solutions.
Collaboration: Australia, Canada and the UK are participating in copyright research across international boundaries.
Australia in particular is looking to find legal, accessible and affordable solutions that will enable people to access content, in preference to levying fines or penalties.
