The reform of New Zealand's Copyright Act

A selection of hot issues, including streaming

Webinar  \  24 May 2020

New Zealand is well into the process of reforming its Copyright Act. While an important component, keeping the law up-to-date with technology is not the only objective. All of the provisions in the Copyright Act are up for consideration. The first round of submissions has been completed and these are now under consideration by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.

This webinar recording, presented by AJ Park copyright expert Ken Moon, covers basic issues such as ensuring copyright does not protect ideas, through to the issues presented by unrelenting internet developments. Transient copying of content—a technological inevitability with audio and video streaming—is a major focus, with examples drawn from New Zealand, the United States and Europe.
