UK looks into IP policy development

The last few years the UK has been funding a number of reviews of the UP IP system. First Gowers then Hargreaves. Now they are doing it once again, but at the meta level. The All-Party Parliamentary Intellectual Property Group in the United Kingdom is now researching the role of Government in developing IP.

The Group intends to look at a range of issues including:

· The purpose and goal of IP policy

· Where and how IP policy is developed in Government

· How IP policy has developed and been co-ordinated within the digital policy environment

· How the Government interacts and co-ordinates IP policy at an international level

· How policy impacting the protection of IP is co-ordinated across departments

The result is to be used to better understand how IP policy is developed and whether it could be improved
