Workshop: Copyright for Innovation (Feb 21, Auckland)

Posted Tuesday 07 Feb 2017

Copyright law affects all of us, determining what New Zealanders can access and share online.

Does New Zealand copyright law support local innovation? Has it kept up with changes in the Internet and other technologies?

InternetNZ invites you to a public event (6-8pm, Feb 21) exploring these questions, at the University of Auckland and hosted by their Department of Commercial Law.

Organisations and sectors will be interested in a more open approach to IP rights, and step up engagement in regard to regulation as we move towards a review of the NZ legislation - so it's important that the voice of content creators is heard in these conversations.

Find out more about the event.
