Author, activist and journalist Cory Doctorow sits down with ARC Future Fellow Rebecca Giblin from Monash Law to discuss the rapidly changing book industry.
Author incomes are plummeting.

Giblin and her team are investigating ways in which taking seriously the author’s interest in copyright can improve not only remuneration outcomes for individuals, but in doing so, reclaim a great deal of currently lost cultural value for broader society. This site provides a window into their work, as well as ongoing information for those interested in authorship issues.
