The Centre for International Research on Communication and Information
Technologies (CIRCIT) invites you and your colleagues to a seminar on:
"Copyright on the Internet: Defending the Indefensible"
Presenter: Peter Moon, Special Counsel - IT, Jerrard & Stuk
For the first time about two months ago, it was reported that the
downloading and transfer of MP3 music files consumed more bandwidth in the
USA than pornography. Most of the music was subject to copyright, but most
of the transfers were in breach. Some commentators are calling for tighter
controls to protect intellectual property on the Internet: others shout
"Hoist the white flag - it's too late!" Is copyright enforcement on the
Internet "defending the indefensible"?
Peter Moon is a specialist in encryption and digital signatures and he is
also the "Hands On PC" columnist for the Australian Financial Review and a
Director of Australian Privacy Pty Ltd.
Cost: $10.00 (Payment on registration); Corporate Associates: four free
