Designing copyright licensing laws to support the converged digital economy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The changed nature of information dissemination and exchange, and the convergence of previously discrete computing, telecommunications and broadcasting technologies have eroded the traditional rationale for compulsory copyright licensing schemes. The objective of this article is to consider the continuing merits of compulsory copyright licensing schemes in the context of a converged digital economy characterised by widespread and rapid dissemination and extensive transformative use of information. In considering the issue, the proper relationship between copyright licensing law and competition law will be addressed.
