Girl Geek Dinners Brisbane - Dinner 4

Who is invited?

If you are a geek and a girl or know of one who is willing to escort you then you are welcome and encouraged to come along. There is a technical focus with the intention of having fun and connecting with other women in IT.
This month we’re fortunate  to have Jessica Coates as our guest speaker.
Being a Copyright Geek
Jessica will talk about being a geek who doesn't know anything about programming, and the importance of support industries, like copyright, to the geek world.

Jessica Coates is the Project Manager of Creative Commons Australia and the Creative Commons Clinic, a program of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Creative Innovation at Queensland University of Technology. The Clinic aims to further the implementation of the international open content licensing movement, Creative Commons, through the promotion of Creative Commons research and usage in Australia.

Jessica’s main areas of research are copyright, open content licensing and internet law. She presents regularly at national and international conferences and workshops, runs an undergraduate research unit and is a principle author of a number of books and reports, including Open Content Licensing: Cultivating the Creative Commons (, Unlocking the Potential Through Creative Commons ( and Legal Aspects of Web 2.0 (

In her role as Project Manager of the Creative Commons Clinic, Jessica also regularly participates in industry and community-based events, with the Clinic being a major partner in projects such as Open Channel Screen Resource Centre's Video Slam (, Melbourne Fringe Festival's Digital Fringe ( and the Australia Council funded Remix My Lit (

Prior to working for the Clinic, Jessica spent most of the last decade as a copyright and communications policy officer with the Commonwealth Department of Communications, Information Technology and the Arts (DCITA), where she worked on major legislative reforms such as the Digital Agenda Review and the Australia -US Free Trade Agreement.
She has a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Arts (English Hons) from the Australian National University.
