Melbourne University’s Intellectual Property Research Institute of Australia (IPRIA) is presenting a free public seminar in Melbourne in association with the Centre for Media and Communications Law (CMCL), Melbourne Business School (MBS) and the Publishing and Communications Program at the University of Melbourne.

The book publishing business seems to be changing irrevocably in the digital age. How will traditional book publishers and book stores cope with new modes of production and distribution in the 21st century? What new business models are being tried by book publishers, retailers and authors? Will the way we read books change entirely, and how might this affect the shape of the industry? These questions will be examined by a distinguished panel of book publishers, sellers and authors, chaired by Emmett Stinson of the Publishing & Communications Program at the University of Melbourne.

DATE: Wednesday 9 February, 6pm – 7:30pm (Refreshments from 5:30pm)
VENUE: CUB Theatre, Melbourne Business School, 200 Leicester Street Carlton
COST: Free of charge
