Copyright: Hooper Calls for Evidence

The first of Professor Ian Hargreaves's recommendations in his report Digital Opportunity was that "Government should ensure that development of the IP System is driven as far as possible by objective evidence." In carrying out his feasibility study on a digital copyright exchange Richard Hooper has called for evidence on:

(1) whether the copyright system really is unfit for purpose; and
(2) the correctness or otherwise of his suggested definitions.

A copy of the call for evidence can be downloaded from the IPO's website and his terms of reference can be viewed here. Responses to the call for evidence have to be submitted by email no later than the 10 Feb 2012.
