IP Federation Anti-Bribery Policy

Document No: PUB 1/15 Posted: 28 July 2015
The IP Federation fully recognises that bribery is a scourge that must be eliminated in all business and political dealings. Not only is bribery wrong, but the slightest hint or accusation of bribery could put at risk the integrity and reputation of the Federation on which its existence and influence depends. The Federation is fully committed to the implementation of the Bribery Act 2010 (“the Act”) which introduced an offence which can be committed by commercial organisations which fail to prevent persons associated with them from carrying out acts of bribery on their behalf. The Federation has taken note of the Ministry of Justice Guidance Note under Section 9 of the Act and believes that, by implementing this policy, it will have in place “adequate procedures” as specified in section 7(2) of the Act. We believe that these procedures also meet Principles 1 to 6 of the Guidance Note.

Intellectual Property Bill 2013–14: Clause 13

Document No: PUB 20E/13 Posted: 23 December 2013

During the course of the IP Bill’s passage through first the Lords and then the Commons, the IP Federation has been pressing for the deletion of Clause 13 or, at the very least, significant amendments which would lessen the damaging impact Clause 13 would bring. Clause 13 introduces a new criminal offence for copying registered designs. Whilst we can understand that this may appear attractive in the fight against piracy and deliberate theft of designs, the wording of Clause 13 does not restrict the criminal offence only to the bad guys.
