In RiP: A remix manifesto, Web activist and filmmaker Brett Gaylor explores issues of copyright in the information age, mashing up the media landscape of the 20th century and shattering the wall between users and producers. The film’s central protagonist is Girl Talk, a mash-up musician topping the charts with his sample-based songs. But is Girl Talk a paragon of people power or the Pied Piper of piracy? Creative Commons founder, Lawrence Lessig, Brazil’s Minister of Culture Gilberto Gil and pop culture critic Cory Doctorow are also along for the ride. A participatory media experiment, from day one, Brett shares his raw footage at opensourcecinema.org, for anyone to remix. This movie-as-mash-up method allows these remixes to become an integral part of the film. With RiP: A remix manifesto, Gaylor and Girl Talk sound an urgent alarm and draw the lines of battle. Which side of the ideas war are you on? Running time; 85mins. Written and Directed by Brett Gaylor.

oak law project
Open access to knowledge is increasingly important both as an economic and social force. The OAK Law Project, established by the Department of Education, Science and Training and currently funded by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations and the Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research, investigates a legal framework that supports open access to Australian academic research outputs such as datasets, articles and electronic theses and dissertations. With the rise of networked digital technologies our knowledge landscape and innovation system are increasingly reliant on best practice copyright management strategies. The Project has developed legal protocols for managing copyright issues in an open access environment. The Project has produced numerous publications, including OAK Law Project Report - A Review and Analysis of Academic Publishing Agreements and Open Access Policies, Legal Framework for e-Research: Realising the Potential, and A Guide to Developing Open Access Through Your Digital Repository.

access
crc for spatial information
The Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information (CRCSI) project focuses upon developing and implementing an open content licensing model for access to and re-use of government information. The underlying purpose is to realise the full potential of under-utilised government information, with special reference to its social, economic, cultural and environmental value. A motivating force behind this project is the fact that access to government information, which may now be greatly facilitated with the advent of high performance computing, is a key driver of all forms of innovation. The project will shortly release A Review of the Literature on the Legal Aspects of Open Access Policy, Practices and Licensing in Australia and Selected Jurisdictions.

qut’s oxford ip mooting team
In 2009 QUT law students Tim Wilkins and Srdan Radojevic, along with coach Judith McNamara and research student Ashleigh Harrold, became the second QUT team to win the Oxford International Intellectual Property Law Moot in the competition's seven-year history. Having qualified through a written submission round in December 2008, in March 2009 the team travelled to Oxford University in the UK to face competitors from 20 countries, including the UK, Canada, India, Singapore, Hong Kong and France. In the early rounds QUT defeated teams from University College London, the University of Edinburgh, British Columbia and Oxford University before once again facing the University of Edinburgh in the final before Lord Justice Mummery, Lord Justice Jacobs and Justice Floyd. Several judges commented that the moots were of a very high quality in 2009, with one judge commenting that QUT's first round moot was the highest quality round moot she had seen.
