Hi guys, Great! No doubt you're in touch with Trish at the ADA, but I've forwarded this on to her as well for coordination purposes.

Assistance from other Wikimedians might be forthcoming if messages are posted (by the committee) on mailing lists asking for advice after a draft is written. Some of Australia's copyright restrictions are ridiculous and unsustainable. Please think of what the strategy would be. At a guess, analysing any ADA proposal, setting out how draconian some aspects of Australian copyright law are compared with those in the US (e.g. no fair use), and organising WMAU members to lobby on social media etc. Tony On 12/11/2013, at 7:28 PM, Andrew Owens wrote: http://www.news.com.au/technology/online/why-creating-memes-is-illegal-in-australia/story-fnjwmwrh-1226758121774 The Australian Digital Alliance is pushing for a fair use amendment to the Copyright Act.
