The International Framework for the Protection of Authors: Bendable Boundaries and Immovable Obstacles
Thursday June 7th 17.30-19.30 CITY UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL
The international framework within which authors’ rights in their works are protected and exploited is often the topic of debate in the context of the reform of national copyright laws: Professor Sam Ricketson takes a pragmatic approach to identifying the “immovable obstacles” to reform, while seeking to expose the potential flexibilities and gaps – the “bendable boundaries” - within the international framework that may enable the realisation of some, at least, of the objectives of those who would seek to reform and reformulate copyright laws. It may be that there is a brave new world for the protection of authors’ rights that is embedded within the interstices of the present international framework that is waiting to be uncovered and realised.

Professor Sam Ricketson (University of Melbourne) holds degrees from the Universities of Melbourne and London, and is a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences of Australia and Australian Academy of Law.
