IP rights in the digital age
Launched at the autumn Party Conferences, our Intellectual Property (IP) Manifesto set out recommendations for the future of this contentious issue.
Encompassing digital rights, archiving, copyright, orphan and unpublished works, the Manifesto seeks to strike the right balance between protection and access. We argue that the fair dealing rights enshrined in print should have an equivalent in the digital field in order to foster enterprise and secure an innovative and buoyant knowledge economy.
The IP Manifesto sets out the role that the national library should play as a leading voice and honest broker in the debate that the e-revolution has generated.
