Review wants proof

The independent review on intellectual property and growth which is looking at how the framework might be changed in the interest of innovation and growth, has issued a call for evidence. It will consider whether there are any barriers in the system and how the framework might better enable new business models that are appropriate to the digital age. Among the issues are whether the UK patent framework presents opportunities or obstacles compared with other countries; whether the need to obtain licences from patent holders presents barriers; whether there is evidence from other national frameworks to suggest how copyright systems could better support innovation; whether the UK copyright system has adapted to the digital age; and the extent to which competition frameworks complement or conflict with each other.
