New consultation on copyright law

The government’s Intellectual Property Office are launching a “wide-ranging consultation” on the “future direction of copyright”. Why they are doing this is unclear, given that the Gowers Review was only two years ago — maybe Gowers didn’t give them the answers they wanted to hear.

Anyway the Open Rights Group have a nifty webpage containing the text of the consultation document and where you can type your response to individual paragraphs. The ORG will collate people individual responses and use them in writing their response to the government.
