Australia’s approach to online enforcement for copyright infringement

Michael Williams heads the intellectual property group at Australian law firm Gilbert + Tobin, and played an instrumental role in advocating for the introduction of site blocking under Australian copyright law.

In this conversation with PitchMark legal advisor Frank Rittman, he elaborates on how Australian legislation deals with Internet service providers whose networks are used by their customers to infringe copyright. This discussion was first streamed for the 2021 World Congress of the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property. Known as AIPPI, it is the world’s leading non-profit association dedicated to the development and improvement of laws for IP protection, and PitchMark was the Platinum Sponsor for this year's World Congress.
