NiTRO call for expert commentary on proposed copyright changes

Writing in the Australian recently, Julie Hare raised the building tension between universities and the likes of Google and Facebook who want to see changes in current copyright law, suggested in the recent Productivity report, and strong opposition from artists and the Copyright Agency Limited. As academic staff and students, and practicing artists, where do tertiary creative artists sit in this debate?  NiTRO is inviting any creative arts academic, (or arts informed colleagues in law)  to help us understand the impact of the changes on the increasing number of artists in universities and tertiary settings.  Responses or articles will be published in the next edition of NiTRO.
