The Hargreaves Review of Intellectual Property: Where Next?

HC 367-I, First Report of Session 2012-13 - Volume I: Report, Together with Formal Minutes, Oral and Written Evidence

Author:
House of Commons - Business, Innovation and Skills Committee
Publisher:
TSO (The Stationery Office)

The report 'The Hargreaves Review of Intellectual Property: Where Next? (HC 367-I)' concludes that further work remains to be done in analysing whether the economic benefits of a 'parody exception' would be as extensive as claimed; other grounds may yet support a change to the law by extending what is legally permissible, which would probably help to improve public respect for copyright law in general.

Further conclusions of the report include

  • On content mining - the Committee agrees that the ability to read published scientific data automatically is useful and needs to be opened up.

  • On the Digital Copyright Exchange - the Committee encourages the Government to push forward, provided that the system is kept simple and there is a proper cost/benefit analysis.

  • On the Unified Patents Court - the Committee is concerned about the Government's the current approach; a unified patent and litigation system could bring many benefits, but the current proposals have not been welcomed by practitioners or industry.
