A new service which aims to support businesses and consumers to better understand copyright laws has been announced by Minister for Intellectual Property Lord Younger.
The online Copyright Notices Service will provide clear and impartial information on what you can and can’t do under copyright law.
The service will ask firms to identify areas where there is particular confusion or misunderstanding and will target its guidance on those issues. The aim is to provide an authoritative and reliable point of reference for businesses and creators.
The service will also help schools, colleges and universities to make better judgments about the lawful use of copyright works, and improve access to works, reducing unintentional copyright infringement and red tape. For example, schools would be able to find out what they could do with materials created by staff and students.
