In a Press Release issued today, Lord Younger of Leckie, the Intellectual Property minister, has announced that £150,000 of funding has been awarded for the development of the Copyright Hub. The Copyright Hub is a much-discussed solution where consumers can easily get information about rights ownership and copyright licences .

In his 2011 review of IP and Growth, Professor Hargreaves recommended that the UK develop an improved licensing system via an industry-led solution.

The Copyright Hub was the main recommendation of the report published by  Richard Hooper CBE in July 2012. To view the full report, click here.
