10 September 2013: AMWA-hosted copyright webinar - FREE for AMWA members!

"Getting a grip on Creative Commons: what CC licenses are and how to work with them" will be held Thursday 26 September at midday to 1pm (AEST). Presented by Professor Anne Fitzgerald, Queensland University of Technology Law School, the webinar is free for AMWA members and costs $10.00 for non-members.

Creative Commons is a worldwide project that encourages copyright owners to allow others to share, reuse and remix their material, legally. CC offers a range of free licences that creators can use to manage their copyright in the online environment, each providing its own specific protections and freedoms. Anne will explain how CC works, why one would use CC licensing and how to apply it to your own creative works.

Anne is an intellectual property and e-commerce lawyer and a Professor in Law Research at QUT. She has an extensive background in the areas of intellectual property law, internet and e-commerce law and international trade law and is a core member of the Creative Commons staff.
