IPO releases new draft exceptions for data analysis, education, research, libraries and archives
Following HM Government announcement in December last (on which see Ben's report here), a couple of weeks ago the UK Intellectual Property Office (IPO) published the first pieces of draft secondary legislation for technical review on private copying, parody, quotation and public administration.
Probably to celebrate the arrival of summer [average summery temperature in South-East England: 16°C], today the UK IPO has released further pieces of draft legislation for technical review. These concern data analysis for non-commercial research, amendments to exceptions for education, and amendments to exceptions for research, libraries and archives.
The IPO welcomes answers to the questions posed in each document and any specific drafting suggestions by 2 August 2013.
Comments can be submitted by email (email@example.com) or - for vintage lovers - by post to:
Intellectual Property Office
The IPO will also be holding a series of open meetings in the week commencing 22 July 2013 to give an opportunity for discussion of the drafts. Numbers will be limited so you are advised to book your place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
