About Kimberlee G Weatherall

My research focuses on intellectual property law, with a particular interest in copyright in digital environments, the impact of free trade agreements on intellectual property law, and, at a more general level, the role of 'outsiders' (competitors, NGOs, and just about anyone else) in defining the scope of IP rights generally and particular rights like patents and trade marks. I have regularly given evidence to Parliamentary Committees including the Joint Standing Committee on Treaties, and was a member of the Australian Government's Advisory Council on IP and the Advisory Committee Member to the Australian Law Reform Commission Inquiry, Copyright and the Digital Economy. I am also a board member of the Australian Digital Alliance.
