            Copyfight (EPUB ebook)

            By McGuinness, Phillipa

            Writers, musicians, filmmakers, gamers, lawyers and academics talk about why copyright matters to them - or doesn't. We expect to be able to log on and read, watch or listen to anything, anywhere, anytime. Then copy it, share it, quote it, sample it, remix it. Does this le...ave writers, designers, filmmakers, musicians, photographers, artists, and software and game developers with any rights at all? Have we forgotten how to pay for content? Are big corporations and copyright lawyers the only ones making money? Or are we looking in the wrong direction as illegal downloading becomes the biggest industry of all and copyright violation a way of life? In this provocative book John Birmingham, Linda Jaivin, Marc Fennell, Clem Bastow, Lindy Morrison, Imogen Banks, Dan Hunter, Angela Bowne and others fire up the copyright debate like never before.

            Buying Back the Land: Organisational Struggle and the Aboriginal Land Fund Commission (EPUB ebook)

            The title of this book has two meanings: first, this publication is an act of bringing to light a history that was gradually becoming mythologised, because the ethnographic films of the past are now rarely seen, and secondly, much of the filmmaking discussed was the result of pre...senting Indigenous socio-cultural life on film.

            Indigenous Rights (PDF ebook)

            Edited by Healey, Justin

            There is still much to be done to close the gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and the rest of the population in terms of social and economic development, culture, land, education, health, justice and human rights. This book looks at the progress of key rights iss...ues confronting Australia's indigenous peoples, including historical civil rights milestones; land rights and native title; Reconciliation and the apology to the Stolen Generations; indigenous governance and self-determination; and constitutional recognition. Indigenous Rights also examines the government policy aimed at closing the gap in health and life expectancy, and human rights concerns over the ongoing federal intervention in Northern Territory communities. How should this nation right the wrongs visited upon the first Australians? Also includes: worksheets and activities, fast facts, glossary, web links, index.

            Born In Hope: The early years of the Family Court of Australia
             

            Born In Hope: The early years of the Family Court of Australia (PDF ebook)

            By Swain, Shurlee

            The Family Law Act of 1975 and the establishment of the Family Court of Australia the following year aimed to revolutionise the settlement of marital disputes in this country. Gone was the notion of divorce as a spectator sport, salacious media reports of unfaithful spouses and p...rivate investigators enlisted to stalk suspicious partners. But the court quickly became the focus of hostility, and many saw it as a failed experiment. Drawing on interviews with judges, lawyers and counsellors, this book challenges that notion of failure. It captures the complexity of the early years as the Family Court grappled with increasing media criticism and acts of violence never before seen in the Australian legal system. This intriguing oral history provides a deeper understanding of the legal institution which arguably impacts on a larger proportion of Australians than any other.

            Privacy and Information Rights (PDF ebook)

            Edited by Healey, Justin

            We live in a public age in which the free flow of personal information is increasingly exposed to serious invasions of privacy. Privacy protection is a growing concern in relation to how people use rapidly advancing technology to store and share their personal information with fa...mily, friends, organisations and governments. Many Australians' daily interactions are conveyed by social networking websites and mobile phones, and can involve sharing personal and financial data online, often under the watchful eye of CCTV surveillance - but are our privacy laws and protections keeping pace with technological change? Although people are able to complain about the misuse of their personal information to a national information commissioner, Australian laws do not clearly allow a person to take action against a person or entity that seriously violates their privacy. In light of the British media's recent phone hacking scandal, should people's right to privacy be at the expense of freedom of expression and the freedom of the media to seek out and disseminate information of public interest? Can a balance between these principles be struck? Is anything really private anymore? Also includes: worksheets and activities, fast facts, glossary, web links, index.
