Michael Fraser Resigns from CAL

In general copyright news, it was announced yesterday that Michael Fraser has resigned from his post as Chief Executive Officer of Copyright Agency Limited (CAL), one of Australia's major copyright collecting societies. Jim Williams has been named as CAL's acting CEO. According to the news release, CAL has been responsible for distributing about $500 million in copyright fees to its members.

One of the areas that the Unlocking IP project is aiming to focus on is the interaction of copyright collecting societies and commons, and it will be interesting to see who takes up this new role in the long term and what impact this has on CAL, copyright law and the commons in Australia.
