2012 ADA copyright forum presentations now available online

On Friday 9 March 2012 on a foggy morning in Canberra, the annual ADA copyright forum kicked off at the National Library of Australia. Despite some late arrivals and absent speakers as a result of the foggy conditions, the forum attracted record numbers to participate in panel sessions devoted to the topic, 'Growing the Digital Economy: Copyright Exceptions for the Internet Age.'

Podcasts from the day are available on the National Library website here. Unfortunately there was a glitch recording the panel session on mash ups and remixes, and that session went unrecorded. Powerpoint presentations have also been attached to this blog post.

Feedback from the forum has been overwhelmingly positive, both in terms of the quality of presentations and the topical points of discussion. A big thank you must be extended to all of our speakers, including our keynote speaker Professor Pamela Samuelson, as well as the National Library and our team of Australian National University law student volunteers. If you have any questions about the copyright forum, contact Ellen Broad at ebroad@nla.gov.au or on (02) 6262 1273.
