Student Event - A Trumpwork Orange - Fair Use and International Copyright Claims

06/9/2020 01:00 pm 06/9/2020 02:00 pm Australia/Melbourne Student Event - A Trumpwork Orange - Fair Use and International Copyright Claims

In 2016, Australian lawyer and online video maker, Hugh Atkin, was sued for copyright infringement by the composer of the score to A Clockwork Orange.

The claim related to a little-seen Donald Trump parody released during the 2016 US Presidential Election campaign.

Hugh will discuss the round-about route by which a university law revue led to his being sued in the District Court of New York, and his experiences with overzealous copyright holders along the way.


Speaker

Hugh Atkin, Barrister

Hugh is a barrister practising at the New South Wales bar, who moonlights in online video.

Before coming to the bar in 2019, Hugh worked as a lawyer at King & Wood Mallesons, as a Tipstaff in the Supreme Court of New South Wales and as an online video producer for the ABC.

Donald Trump once unironically described Hugh as "a real fan".
