Copyright Law, Digital Content and the Internet in the Asia-Pacific provides a unique insight into the key issues facing copyright law and digital content policy in a networked information world. It emanates from a landmark conference – The First International Forum on the Content Industry and Intellectual Property – organised by Queensland University of Technology, The ARC Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation and East China University of Political Science and Law in Shanghai in 2007.
The book features chapters from a wide range of experts in their respective fields from across the Asia-Pacific region, including Australia, the People’s Republic of China, Hong Kong, Indonesia and Singapore. Some of the areas examined include the new digital environment, digital content policy, the networked information economy, copyright law and new media. The book provides a timely and scholarly appraisal of the legal and policy considerations facing anyone trying to regulate, sponsor or utilise the vast array of new media and content platforms now available.
'This collection of scholarly papers will prove to be a valuable resource for students, practitioners, judges and anyone interested in understanding some of the challenging issues, which new technologies have created for the law.'
Chief Justice Zhipei Jiang, Supreme People’s Court of the People’s Republic of China
