  • "I found the copyright and photography seminar very helpful. The information and examples provided of copyright situations were tailored to our needs." - Sydney 2018

  • "An excellent seminar, covering all areas of copyright at a level easily understood by any layman. I went away retaining all the information provided. Highly recommend it." - Melbourne 2016

  • "I really liked the recent, contextualised examples that James and Jo used in their workshops. Drawing on real life examples helped to explain the concepts. Thank you!" - Sydney 2016

  • "Presenters gave lots of relevant examples and were very open to questions, making sure questions were answered in a way understood by everyone present." - Perth 2016

  • "The presenters were knowledgeable and prepared and had a good presentation style. Flexible to answer questions and the day seemed to go very quickly." - Adelaide 2016

  • I have been to a few seminars over the years, and this one was the best I have been to. Content was very relevant, and I felt the presenters were being realistic with their comments and examples, instead of just talking in "lawyer speak" as in previous years. I walked away with a very clear understanding of Copyright issues as they are in the modern world. Great modern examples, addressing lots of digital issues" -Sydney 2017

  • "Excellent - lots of information; good use of examples; good handouts; very relevant and useful information."- Brisbane 2017
