What next for Copyright Reform?
Friday, 21 December 2007

One idea that has been picking up support is the call for a Public Inquiry, or Commission, on copyright legislation. While public inquiries are often thought of as  proceedings that follow instances of official wrong-doing, the process could also be considered in the positive sense of contributing to policy formulation in a more transparent and thoughtful manner.
