  • Understanding copyright: basic principles

    Ainsworth, L. L.; Dawson, R. G.

    Conference item
    Lincoln University

    The underlying principle of copyright in New Zealand is that any person who creates an intellectual or artistic work is entitled to attribution and benefit from endeavour in the creation of that work. Copyright provides a set of exclusive rights to creators/copyright owners in relation to their works. It provides protection for the creator in the way that work is expressed, whether written, visual, or aural, but it doesn’t protect the knowledge or ideas that are an integral part of the work. Copyright protection is automatic under the Copyright Act 1994, it doesn’t require any form of registration, and exists at the point where a work is created. The development of the internationally recognised Creative Commons licencing system has enabled creators to more easily specify the terms of reuse for their own material, while maintaining the work’s public accessibility in an open access environment. The importance of balancing the rights of users and creators is acknowledged.

  • Uptake and persistence of 1080 in watercress and puha

    Ogilvie Shaun, C.

    Conference item
    Lincoln University

    Sodium fluoroacetate (Compound 1080) is a key tool in the control of possums, and the most extensively used vertebrate pesticide in New Zealand. The most common method of control using this pesticide is via aerial application of cereal or carrot baits containing 1080. Despite the efficiency of aerial 1080 application for reducing possum population numbers, support amongst Māori is mixed. The risk of secondary poisoning of people using kai resources has previously been identified as key research by the Animal Health Board (AHB), Environmental Risk Management Authority (ERMA) and Māori. During aerial application of 1080 baits, there is the possibility that 1080 may leach from baits and be taken up by nearby plants. This presentation is part of a research programme conducted to investigate the uptake and persistence of 1080 in watercress and puha.
