Draft Copyright Amendment Bill the subject of today's #SandtonDiscussion
This morning's #SandtonDiscussion hosted by Adams & Adams takes a look at the progress of commentary on the Draft Copyright Amendment Bill first alerted to readers by Jeremy Speres (Spoor & Fisher) here at the end of July. There seems to be a gathering momentum of opinions and views around this piece of potential legislation. Afro Leo is also keenly aware, after trying to meet with him this week, that MacDonald Netshitenzhe's department has a full diary collating the commentary from a variety of stakeholders.
The #SandtonDiscussion will start as usual at 9am on twitter. See you there!
