UK government copyright consultation
- Published 16th December 2011
The UK government has just opened up consultation to its response on copyright based upon the Hargreaves Review of IP and Growth.
The government is seeking relevant evidence on the potential for the proposed measures to improve the contribution of the copyright system to UK economic growth, and to inform decisions on legislative and other actions in these areas. The consultation is aimed at individuals and organisations, including small and medium sized business, which may be impacted by the proposed changes to UK copyright laws.
The Society will be preparing its own response, working with the British Copyright Council and the British Photographic Council, to those areas of likely concern to its membership and the photographic sector more generally, in particular around orphan works.
Members may be interested in making your own representations and the closing date for these is 21 March 2012. For more information see: http://www.ipo.gov.uk/pro-policy/consult/consult-live/consult-2011-copyright.htm
