Canada – Australia IP and Cyberlaw Conference

Some blog readers may know that the University of Ottawa, Faculty of Law hosts an annual IP and Cyberlaw conference each fall.  In previous years, we've held a comparative Canada – U.S. conference and last year hosted a "global conversation" on Internet law issues featuring speakers from around the world including Lessig, Hugenholtz, Greenleaf, and many others.

I'm pleased to promote the details of the event this year which will contrast Canadian and Australian approaches to IP (primarily copyright) and Internet law issues. Set for September 30th and October 1st, this year's conference includes several "copyright and" panels examining use, access, international issues, education, and intermediaries.  Other presentations will focus on privacy, content regulation, and consumer concerns.

Speakers for the conference include:

Peter Drahos, ANU
Graham Greenleaf, UNSW
Matthew Rimmer, ANU
Kim Weatherall, Melbourne
David Lindsay, Monash
Brian Fitzgerald, QUT
Carolyn Penfold, UNSW
Dan Hunter, Penn
Ian Kerr, Ottawa
David Lametti, McGill
Carys Craig, Osgoode
Jane Bailey, Ottawa
Sam Trosow, Western
Elizabeth Judge, Ottawa
Myra Tawfik, Windsor
Michael Deturbide, Dalhousie

Pricing is very reasonable and there is an early bird rate for registrations before September 1st.
