Title: The Battle for Copyright: Fandom versus Mega Corporations

Status: confirmed

Proposed by: Cathy Cupitt


This paper is driven by two questions: What is copyright? and How should it work? One common view of copyright is that it’s a way for authors to protect their hard work. While this is true, it is not the whole story. In particular: it is not individual authors who control and influence copyright law -- it is corporate authors, such as Disney, and government authors, such as the Australian Commonwealth.
