Fighting for our Copyright


Kim Williams, chair of the Copyright Agency Limited, is helping lead the national campaign against the proposed changes.

In a fierce speech, Williams outlined the fundamental importance of copyright not only to the inalienable right of creators to control their work but also to secure Australian cultural production. He believes the Productivity Commission report has been overly influenced by an ideological agenda developed over many years by global digital corporations to realise the goal of free use of other people’s intellectual property.
