2017 Conference


The 2017 APCA Conference was hosted by Prof. Natalie Stoianoff. The theme was:


“What’s so Special About the Asian-Pacific? The Region, People and Law”


29-31 October 2017

University of Technology Sydney, Faculty of Law, Building 5, Block B, Corner of Quay St & Ultimo Rd, Haymarket


The 2017 Conference was a highly interesting, insightful and extremely fun experience. The general question addressed at the conference was: 
     The Asian-Pacific is currently 'sexy' in the intellectual property world. More and more nations in the region are finding their voices and             there is an increasing recognition of the potential for copyright to be used within the region to its benefit as well as advantages to be gained      by the region working together as a unit. But what is it that makes the Asian-Pacific region so special? 

Presenters took the question and ran with it in every imaginable direction. Copyright law with respect to art, history, culture, internet, and future technology were just some of the fascinating topics discussed (see the full programme here). All in all, the Conference was undoubtedly riveting as well as thought provoking, but the experience was not confined to the walls of the University. Once the sun went down, conference attendees took to the waters, where they enjoyed a delicious dinner and drinks, whilst floating around the gorgeous Sydney Harbour. The luxury liner even had live music, which served nicely as background melodies for further fascinating copyright discussion.
