The Mega Copyright Debate

04 September 2013 - 7.30 pm

Kim Dotcom will feature in a fundraising debate for the Michael King Writers' Centre in September, along with leading authors, writers and comedians.

The debate will bring together the internet entrepreneur - or pirate, depending on your perspective – Listener columnist and blogger Toby Manhire, Metro editor Simon Wilson and Dunedin crime writer Vanda Symon, who is on the board of Copyright Licensing NZ, along with award-winning comedian Jeremy Elwood and writer, commentator and internet adventurer David Slack. The chairman will be television and radio presenter Wallace Chapman, with author Charlotte Grimshaw. 

The debate will be held at Q’s Rangatira Theatre on Queen Street, at 7.30 pm on Wednesday September 4.

Tickets will be available  at Q Theatre and cost $35 (service fees apply).

The moot is that “Internet killed the copyright star”. It will look at what's happening with copyright in the age of the internet, at Auckland’s Q Theatre.

Where: Rangatira Theatre, Q, 305 Queen St, Auckland
