The event hosted by QUT Law School and the Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation was a great success. Organised by Professor Mark Perry (UWO, on sabattical at QUT), and Nic Suzor (QUT), the event saw Mia Garlick from [Creative Commons](http://creativecommons.org) joining Professor Brian Fitzgerald from Creative Commons Australia and [Richard Neville](http://richardneville.com), [Toby Miller](http://www.facultydirectory.ucr.edu/cgi-bin/pub/public_individual.pl?faculty=2302), and [Dean Whitbread](http://www.funk.co.uk) to discuss the direction of intellectual property in the 21st century. Other QUT researchers present included [Axel Bruns](http://snrub.info), Dilan Thampapillai, and Anne Matthew.

Everyone met in [Second Life](http://secondlife.com), a fantastic Virtual World created by Linden Labs.
