PA welcomes government recognition that IP is the key to growth

Posted at 8:15AM Tuesday 18 Dec 2012

The Publishers Association welcomes today's announcement made by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills on intellectual property. The PA welcomes the recognition that "the skillful use of IP" is the key to economic growth. The PA is also supportive of the proposed new programme to boost consumer and business awareness about the value of IP and will work closely with government and other creative sectors to deliver this.

Richard Mollet, CEO of The Publisher's Association, said: "The PA continues to maintain that the UK's copyright framework is fit for purpose and is flexible enough to accommodate the developments of the digital market.

"Developing licensing and business models that work with the grain of copyright has allowed publishers to drive growth of ebooks, online learned journals and data and text mining tools.

"If it wishes to support economic growth in the creative industries the Government needs to support copyright, not supervise its erosion."
