Intellectual property, media and communications research network
We are in the midst of the information age where the knowledge economy is taking over from traditional industrial and resources markets. Global communications and connectivity have enhanced this transition while simultaneously creating their own issues and problems.
The intellectual property, media and communications research network comprises a group of researchers engaged in projects across these related fields of law which, in turn, contribute to the regulation and enhancement of the information age. Now central to globalisation and international trade, intellectual property rights can be a measure of a nation’s wealth, affect trade relations with other nations and produce significant impacts on human rights. Media and communications laws enable the message to get across but also regulate what the message is and the way that message is provided.
Although the projects reflect the particular research interests of members, a concern with balancing rights and interests between society and individuals underlies the current research of the network members whether these projects are concerned with analysis of existing norms or reforms to regulatory policy and institutions.
Members of the network also contribute to the postgraduate coursework specialisation:
- MAJ09400 Intellectual Property, and
- MAJ09394 Law and Regulation,
- as well as the Master of Intellectual Property.
