*Don't* © the Future

Here's yet another UK consultation on intellectual monopolies:


David Lammy, Minister for Higher Education and Intellectual Property, has launched a wide-ranging consultation by the Intellectual Property Office on the future direction of copyright. The aim is to ensure that the copyright system properly supports creativity, promotes investment and jobs while also inspiring the confidence of businesses and of users (as being fair and reasonable). In building a long term vision and supporting our creative industries, we need to think beyond our national borders and consider the global future of copyright.

Given that the UK Government is ignoring its own Gowers Review in favour of giving in to emotional blackmail by ageing popstars, there seems little point in responding - but I probably will anyway....
