As digital affordances change the possibilities for creative practice and related business practice, long-standing tensions in copyright policy surface. Professor Patricia Aufderheide, a 2017 Fulbright Scholar at QUT, is presenting a Distinguished Visitor Lecture on whether Australian policy encourages self-censorship in a digital era.
The Australian government has repeatedly raised the question of expanding exceptions to copyright monopolies, which would provide more flexibility for creators, tech companies, software designers and consumers. But we lack research about the actual behaviour of creators, which would help policy makers understand the implications of analog-era policy for creators themselves in a digital environment. Indeed, the interests of consumers have often been pitted needlessly against those of creators. Aufderheide's research explores creator behaviour in relation to the creator's copyright understanding, in order to reconnect creator experience to questions of innovation. This talk will share early results.
