UK Intellectual Property Office Seeks Comment On Copyright Exceptions 13/06/2013 by Intellectual Property Watch Leave a Comment Print This Post By Dugie Standeford for Intellectual Property Watch Draft legislation updating UK copyright exceptions is out for comment, the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) has said. The announcement is available here. The changes result from the May 2011 Hargreaves review of IP and growth [pdf] whose recommendations for modernised copyright exceptions were accepted by the government [pdf]. The IPO has now posted proposals for a new exception for private copying [pdf]; parody [pdf]; and quotation [pdf]. The government also proposes to amend the existing exception for public administration [pdf]. Drafts for other exceptions will be published when they are ready, the IPO said. Comments on the first four exceptions are due 17 July to email@example.com.
