UK Government consultation on timing of repeal of section 52 of Copyright, Designs and Patents Act

27 October 2014

The IP Federation has submitted a brief response to the UK Government consultation on timing of repeal of section 52 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act with a closing date of 27 October 2014. 

It is crucially important for businesses (large and small) to be made aware of the proposed transitional provisions in good time in advance of the new law coming into effect (through targeted IP awareness workshops and education campaigns, for example), and for the subject provisions to be sufficiently clear so that users can understand the effect of the proposed legislative changes and operate competitively with sufficient certainty in a complex business landscape of IP rights.
