U.K. Minister Calls for Intellectual Property Framework ‘Fit for Purpose in the Digital Age’

The U.K.’s dedicated IP minister Baroness Neville-Rolfe has used the occasion of World Intellectual Property Day (April 26) to call for an IP framework “fit for purpose in the digital age.”

“The process of digitization has transformed the world around us at a furious pace. It has revolutionized the way we work; the way we interact; and the way we shop,” said Neville-Rolfe in a blog post referencing the “symbiotic relationship between digital and IP.” “The creative sector must be able to protect and benefit from intellectual property,” she went on to say, adding that if the U.K. wants to secure its future as a “nation of innovators, we need to make sure our IP framework is fit for purpose.”
