Motion text

That this House notes the publication of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills Select Committee's report on The Hargreaves Review of Intellectual Property: Where next?; recognises that intellectual property law underpins the livelihood of millions of musicians, authors, actors, designers, small businesses, technicians, writers, producers, performers and all those in the UK who rely on creativity for their employment; calls on the Government to ensure that any reform of intellectual property law reflects the economic contribution they make and the loss they may suffer should those laws be weakened; and further calls on the Government to ensure that any proposed changes to copyright law do not have unintended consequences for UK business across the different industry sectors.
