« on: May 23, 2011, 02:53:07 pm »
This report takes a breif look at the latest UK Govt plans regarding copyrights in general .. and finds them wanting.

Governments have a long tradition of commissioning copyright overhauls and then throwing them in the bin. Will Ian Hargreaves' IP review suffer the same fate?
I can already hear copyright-holders grumbling in response that governments do bugger all to protect them, and anti-copyright campaigners pointing to stronger penalties and ever-longer copyright terms, as evidence that rights-holders are overprotected. The point is, though, that there are major consequences and huge risks for any government that attempts to remove itself from the system. So compulsion is always an option, but one that would rebound on the businesses and the Exchequer.


An interesting read albeit with less meat on the bone than I would have wished for, but still interesting to see whare the UK Govt may end up in all this.
