Reclaiming copyright's lost cultural value for authors and the public

Research

Project Description

This project aims to develop new empirical understanding of the cultural value lost through existing approaches to copyright. Copyright is non-zero-sum, so it is possible to make the pie larger by changing the scope and division of rights. The project intends to explore that potential by using fuller protection of authorship as a mechanism for securing a fairer go for creators, unlocking new opportunities for publishers, generating new sources of arts funding and improving access for the public. Expected outcomes include new understanding of how this can be achieved within the confines of an unamendable treaty framework. The project should provide significant benefit by informing law reform debates at domestic and international levels.
