Rebecca Wong, Nottingham Trent University Law School, has published Changing the Landscape of the Intellectual Property Framework: The Intellectual Property Bill 2013. Here is the abstract.
The introduction of the Intellectual Property Bill is a response to the Hargreaves Report to reform the current intellectual property framework in UK with the aim of simplifying and improving intellectual property in two main areas. Namely, design, patent and copyright law. In this article, the author will consider what some of these changes are and analyse how this is likely to affect the current intellectual property framework.
