Changes to copyright licensing legislation proposed
Proposals to update the copyright licensing system have been announced by the Government. Measures include creating an ‘orphan works’ scheme to allow use of works that currently cannot be licensed or used, and a voluntary scheme for extending collective licensing. The proposals have been developed in response to recommendations made in the Hargreaves Review of Intellectual Property, published in August 2011. Business minister Norman Lamb said: “It is vital that we make the most of our creative industries, boosting their contribution to the economy while ensuring protection of the rights holders.”
