The Productivity Commission has just released its draft report into
Australia's intellectual property system.


Public submissions to be taken into consideration for the final report
(to be published in August) are due by Friday 3 June.

Of particular note - they recommend abolishing software and business
methods patents, introducing a "fair use" system and working to
significantly shorten the term of copyright.

I notice OSIA and Kim Weatherall, among others, are quoted a few times :)
