COUNTDOWN TO GOWERS


The Gowers Review website confirms IP's worst-kept secret: the publication of the Gowers Review will be announced in the Chancellor's Pre-budget Report speech, which begins at 12.30pm today.

The IPKat will bring you analysis ASAP.

In the meantime, the Times reports that Gowers will recommend 'that exemptions to copyright law should be allowed for "transformative works"'. If this is correct, it would prove to be a major departure from the UK's traditional approach of specifically elaborated copyright defences.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
