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
- House of Commons - Business, Innovation and Skills Committee
- 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.
