What Are We Busy With?

Current Core Projects

The DFA works on several specific projects on its own or in partnership with others. These are key projects the DFA believes are valuable to our industry sector and that require more resources and communication than usually posted via the blog and newsletter.

 

Creative Rights & Copyright Balance

This project has been ongoing with various partners and with the help of PIJIP since 2008, and continues to look at the balance between the right of creators and owners of that copyright, and the need to create new works, which might need to include certain material, under certain circumstances from other works.
