Role of Government in Protecting and promoting Intellectual Property
30 March 2012
The IP Federation has submitted a response to the All-Party Intellectual Property Group’s inquiry into the role of Government in protecting and promoting intellectual property. Organisations wishing to submit evidence were asked to e-mail Alliance@luther.co.uk by 30 March 2012.
In summary, the IP Federation is in favour of action in the following three key areas:
- recognition of the policy expertise of the IPO and making full use of this;
- better coordination of IP policy across Government; and
- making the UK IP policy voice heard, especially in Europe.
Certain aspects of the current system work well, but there is much scope for improvement.
