The Arts Law Centre of Australia is a community legal centre that provides free/low-cost legal advice to people in the arts, or people who work for an arts organisation. In the studio tonight is Serena Armstrong, a lawyer who has been involved with the Arts Law Centre of Australia for over seven years. Serena will be speaking with us about the work of the Centre including its education and law reform activities. She will also speak about the Centre’s “Artists in the Black” service for the Indigenous arts community.

Want to know the difference between copyright, copyleft and Creative Commons? Tonight on Done By Law we take a look at the law of copyright and how artists and activists around the world are challenging ideas of cultural ownership. We start with the experience of Negativland, a US based band who sampled U2’s ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For’ in the early 1990’s and were subsequently nearly sued out of existence. We then fast forward 10 years to 2001and explore Creative Commons, a non-profit organisation that allows people to select their own licences for their material. We chat to Elliott Bledsoe from Creative Commons Australia to get an idea of what this licencing system is all about. To view the interview with Mark Hosler from Negativland and its associated Creative Commons licence, go here.
