Getting copyright right in the information age

Did you know our Copyright Act is over 20 years old? A lot has changed since then - like we have the internet! With rapid information access and sharing as well as recent developments in cloud computing, text and data mining it's time for a review! This is underway and being led by the Ministry for Business, Innovation and Employment

We have teamed up with InternetNZ to bring you the low-down on the law affecting copyright and to explore some of the key issues for copyright and the Internet (you can read more in their recently released position paper Getting copyright right in the information age)
