'We’re Not Gonna Take It: Parody, satire and damages in copyright law - recorded webinar

1 CPD Unit  Recorded webinar
.
Online
This session was recorded on 9 March 2022 as part of the 'We’re Not Gonna Take It: Parody, satire and damages in copyright law - live webinar.


Do you want to further develop your understanding of copyright law? This session will delve into the parody and satire defence in light of the recent Universal Music v Palmer decision. Come and listen to the lawyers from the firm that represented Universal Music in this matter and led this publishing giant to winning the case in court. 

Clive Palmer’s unlicensed use of Twisted Sister’s song We’re Not Gonna Take It in election advertising resulted in one of the highest awards of damages in a copyright case in Australia, and some further clarification about the parody or satire defence.  

Hear from the lawyers who successfully represented Universal Music in the case, including their insights on: 

  • issues around the originality and similarity of musical works; 

  • the scope of the parody and satire defence in the Copyright Act; 

  • assessment of compensatory damages (including the application of the “user principle” in copyright cases); and 

  • why the Court ordered one of the highest awards of additional damages ever for copyright infringement.

Creditor’s statutory demands – A creditor’s statutory demand for payment of debt issued pursuant to section 459E of the Corporations Act is a common method used to recover debts owed by a company. However, as a matter of public policy, courts have determined that statutory demands should not be used as a primary debt recovery tool and are liable to be set-aside on a number of grounds. 

Due to the concern that the economic impacts arising from COVID would cause a large number of companies to fail, the Federal Government introduced limitations on the use of statutory demands for the majority of 2020.  In this session, Elias will consider the use of and other recent developments relating to statutory demands.
