PPA pushes for simplified IP rights exchange

The move coincides with the publication of a Feasibility Study on a proposed Digital Copyright Exchange by the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) on 27 March.

While the report states there is no evidence that copyright licensing is not fit for purpose for the publishing sector, the PPA has argued that the process for accessing rights could be simplified.

More particularly, the PPA’s submission to the study included an example of the current difficulties publishers have in obtaining usage permission from rights holders in other creative industries.

Mark Burr, Head of Public Affairs at the PPA, said: “This process gives the IPO an opportunity to make the process of obtaining the rights to use content more efficient for both the rights holder and the content user, and the PPA is pressing the case for better ways of doing business on behalf of our members.”

The IPO’s study is authored by former Informa Chief Executive Richard Hooper and is the first phase in the implementation of the Government’s response to the Hargreaves Review into the UK’s intellectual property system.
