(Commercial Law)

23 March 2017

6 - 7pm

Venue: The University of Auckland Business School, Case Room 3, Level 0, Owen G Glenn Building, 12 Grafton Road, Auckland

You are invited to hear from Patricia Aufderheide, University Professor of Communication Studies in the School of Communication at American University in Washington DC, who will discuss her decade of research with US creators on copyright policy.

Abstract
In a rapidly moving digital environment, copyright policy becomes crucial to encouraging cultural production and innovation. How do creators internationally do their work in light of their understanding of copyright’s requirements? How do their perceived options affect their creative production?

Patricia Aufderheide discusses results from a decade of research with U.S. creators, which documents a pattern of self-censorship, and compares it with more limited research on Australian and New Zealand creators.
