Response to the Productivity Commission’s Draft Report into Intellect Property
Policy Submission prepared by Music Australia
3 June 2016
Music Australia has prepared a submission in response to the Productivity Commission’s draft report into Intellect Property. We express concern at the narrow economic focus of the report, its apparent disregard for the rights of creators, and the lack of an evidence base for proposed changes.
Our thanks to Paul Noonan, Music Australia Director and Partner at Thomson Geer Lawyers, for taking the lead on this submission, and to our Chair Michael Smellie for his input.
