The lowdown on IP from expert Angus Macinnis @AequoEtBono – 15 mins with @journlaw

By MARK PEARSON

 

Intellectual property law – particularly copyright – can be one of the most complex areas of the law for journalists, bloggers and other professional communicators.

Thankfully, commercial lawyer Angus Macinnis from StevensVuaran Lawyers (@AequoEtBono) makes Australian IP law all a bit clearer in this short interview with me, @journlaw, covering everything from the basics of IP through to whether a simple Tweet might be actionable for breach of copyright.
