InternetNZ holds Copyright Amendment Bill Workshops in Wellington and Auckland
Posted on 11-Feb-2007 10:12 by Juha | Tags Filed under: News


Technical, legal and industry experts will present join panel discussions for two Copyright Workshops organised for mid-February by InternetNZ (The Internet Society of New Zealand) in Wellington and Auckland this week.

The Wellington Workshop will be held at the InterContinental on Tuesday, February 13 whereas the Auckland event takes place the day after at the Sky City Convention Centre.

The workshops will address the Copyright (New Technologies and Performers' Rights) Amendment Bill, ahead of the closing date for Select Committee submissions.

Presenters and panelists include University of Aucklandís Peter Gutmann, technologist Nathan Torkington, Bronwyn Turley of the Ministry of Economic Development, barrister Clive Elliott, internet and music commentator Russell Brown, Victoria Universityís Stephen Marshall, amplifier.co.nzís Chris Hocquard, and AustralAsian Performing Rights Assocationís Anthony Healey amongst others.

Amongst the topics discussed are ISP liability, technological protection measures, fair use, rights of copyright owners vs. rights of users, and format shifting.

InternetNZ's position is that it supports the legislation but has a number of reservations in respect to the detail that may be able to be worked out in the Select Committee stage. As well as the key issues for the Society of ISP liability, hosting and ISP definition, there are discussions to be had on technological protection measures, format shifting and fair use.

The Copyright Amendment Bill has attracted a lot of passionate and articulate discussion in the media and across the Web, and the workshops are open for all to attend. If you wish to come along to either workshop, register by simply emailing your contact and credit card details to: susi at internetnz (dot) net (dot) nz or call InternetNZ on 0800 101 151.

Registration fee is $150 or free for InternetNZ members. InternetNZ membership starts at only $21 for Individuals, $56.25 for Professional Individuals, $112.50 for Small Organisations or $562.50 for Large Organisations.
