Many artists, intellectual property owners, creatives and brands face the dilemma when operating in the social space, what do you do about copyright? And who “owns” content in a user generated content piece? Is the notion of copyright “old fashioned”?
The speakers for the event are:
- Professor Brian Fitzgerald - Professor of Intellectual Property and Innovation, Queensland University of Technology. He will be representing Creative Commons Australia (ccAustralia) is the Australian derivative project of the international Creative Commons project. ccAustralia manage the Australian versions of the Creative Commons licences and conduct research and education activities designed to foster a creative and innovative community in our region. Hosted at Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, CCau is devoted to the promotion of Creative Commons in Australia.
- Stephen von Muenster –
principal, vonMuenster solicitors
& attorneys, advisor on copyright and content ownership issues to
advertising agencies and brand
- Additional speaker TBA
Who should attend?
- Artists, writers, musicians, creatives
- Clients – marketing managers, product managers
There will be short presentations, a question and answer forum from the live audience and the Twitter stream.
We are expecting healthy debate around these core issues:
- How do artists, creatives, and bands get paid and keep ownership in an era of social and shared content?
- What is Creative commons? How is it different to traditional copyright?
- How do content owners deal with social mashups?
- What are frontier issues for social media and copyright?
- Do we need a code of practice?
- How do you avoid getting sued in another country?
- Do we need new models of copyright?
- Trademarks - in the era of social media where do you draw the line?
- User generated content – what do you do when users want to “play” with brand content?
- How do you police copyright? And should social platforms/channels have to step in to assist?
- What revenue models can artists develop in social spaces?
Our venue has changed for this event - back to Polo Lounge and Supper Club. We ask you for a $2 donation at the door to cover our AV costs for the evening. Doors open at 6.30 for a 7.15 pm start.
