About this product
- DescriptionWhat rights do artists and creators have in a world where everything is free? Copyright is one of the central ecomic and creative issues of our time. We expect to be able to log on and read, watch or listen to anything, anywhere, anytime. Then copy it, share it, quote it, sample it, remix it. Does this leave writers, designers, filmmakers, musicians, photographers, artists and game developers with any rights at all? Have we forgotten how to pay for content? Is the concept of making a living from creativework outdated? Without effective copyright protection will key Australian businesses collapse? And perhaps the biggest question: has illegal downloading become the largest industry of all and copyright violation a way of life? Copyfight brings together writers, musicians and others from creative industries, media companies, cultural institutions, law firms and universities, including John Birmingham, Linda Jaivin, Clem Bastow and Lindy Morrison.
- Author BiographyPhillipa McGuinness has been grappling with copyright issues as a publisher for twenty years, at both Cambridge University Press and NewSouth Publishing, and has published a number of awardwinning trade and academic books.
