The [Arts Law Centre of Australia](http://artslaw.com.au) are hosting a free seminar next week as part of [Arts Law Week Sydney](http://www.artslaw.com.au/_documents/files/ALWSydneyFinalWeb_30_06.pdf) (10-17 July).

The seminar is entitled “Creative Commons – a good thing for artists?”. The panel of speakers includes Nic Suzor (Creative Commons Australia), Raena Lea-Shannon (Frankel Lawyers), Professor Graham Greenleaf (School of Law, University of New South Wales), Caroline Morgan (Copyright Agency Ltd) and Mark Pesce (an artist who uses creative commons licences in his work).

The Arts Law Centre of Australia is the national community legal centre for the arts, who provide free legal advice and cheap and accessible legal resources to artists and arts organisations. Arts Law is very interested in Creative Commons, and it is very encouraging to see these types of events. We encourage anyone who is in the Sydney area on 13 July 2006 to come along!
