Draft legislation updating UK copyright exceptions is out for comment, the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) has said.
The announcement is available here.
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.
