Parliamentary briefing: Intellectual Property Bill – Committee Stage, House of Commons

Universities UK supports Clause 20 of the Intellectual Property Bill which provides a qualified exemption from Freedom of Information requests for pre-publication research. 

We also support amendments tabled by Iain Wright MP which would extend the scope of the new exemption to cover material generated in the course of planning research. 

We also support Clause 4 which allows for acts for the purposes of experimentation and teaching not to infringe design rights. This briefing gives our reasons.
