All-Party Parliamentary Intellectual Property Group

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

The all-party parliamentary group's purpose is to debate and highlight the value of intellectual property rights to the economy and the importance of intellectual property protection and enforcement.

Luther Pendragon (a consultancy) provides secretariat services to the group on behalf of the Alliance Against IP Theft[1][2]

Role of government report[edit]

In March 2012, the Group opened a public inquiry into intellectual property, inviting submissions about the role of government in protecting and promoting intellectual property. However, submissions were only welcomed from organisations, not individuals, and had to be submitted through Luther Pendragon. [3][4] A submission was made by the Open Rights Group.[5]

The report, The Role of Government in Promoting and Protecting IP, was released in October 2012. The report covered the importance of IP to the UK economy and suggested that a strong government policy on IP is imperative to future growth.
