[QUT Law Faculty](http://www.law.qut.edu.au) and the [ARC Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation](http://www.cci.edu.au) invite you to discuss this vital question in [Second Life](http://www.secondlife.com/) Virtual World at 2pm, Wednesday 26 April 2006 – World Intellectual Property Day (Australian Eastern Standard Time).

The rapid pace of technological change we are experiencing requires us to be aware of the balances inherent in copyright law; we must attempt to provide adequate protection to copyright owners, while allowing for a rich culture of experimentation and innovation.

Join us for a discussion of the current context, covering fair use/fair dealing, blogs, mash-ups, parody, and much more.

Speakers include:
– *Richard Neville* (Futurist)
– *Toby Miller* (UC Riverside, QUT Vice Chancellor Distinguished Visitor)
– *Professor Brian Fitzgerald* (QUT)
– *Professor Mark Perry* (University of Western Ontario)

The discussion will be held in [Second Life](http://www.secondlife.com/), a massive online multiplayer virtual world created by Linden Labs, at Pooley Stage, Pooley (251, 16, 55), at 9pm Server Time on Tuesday 25 April 2006.

Hope to see you online soon.
