From Hypatia to Hugo -- plus lots more!

"Copyright in 2014: The Year in Review & Evening Lecture: Professor Jane Ginsburg" is the somewhat complex title of an event taking place this coming Thursday, 20 November, in the Metcalfe Auditorium, New South Wales State Library, courtesy of the University of Technology, Sydney's UTS: Law and the Communications Law Centre. This blogger, who is sitting in Sydney this very minute as he composes this post, is inwardly lamenting the fact that. by the time this attractive and challenging event takes place, he will be in transit, leaving the bright and sunny Australian summer for the damp, dark winter of North Western Europe.

The event is in two parts: Copyright in 2014: the Year in Review" is a three-part drama starring Vanessa Hutley (General Manager, Music Rights Australia), Joel Smith (a partner in Herbert Smith Freehills) and Nic Suzor (Transformation Fellow/Senior Lecturer, Queensland University of Technology). Then, following the interval, the curtain rises on "From Hypatia to Victor Hugo to Larry & Sergey: “All the world’s knowledge” and Universal Authors’ Rights
", starring Professor Jane C. Ginsburg (who truly needs no introduction).

If you're thinking of attending, the details are here.

Hypatia here
Victor Hugo here
and if you didn't know who Jane is, here she is!
