No change (for now) for "2039" Unpublished Works
Ben wrote about the original consultation on this blog here pointing out that the most vocal lobbying on the issue had come from CILIP, on behalf of libraries, museums and archives.
Those same lobbyists will no doubt be deeply disappointed that the consultation response decides to take no action for now, other than to undertake further discussions to deal with some of the difficult issues raised by various consultation respondees.
At least this is one issue ticked off the "to do" list at the IPO in what looks like being a busy year for copyright policy, led by the European agenda.
