Richard Hooper comments:

  • “This has been a tremendously interesting period of work and we have had the fullest cooperation from individuals and organisations across the creative industries.”
  •  I am pleased to report, on the basis of the evidence presented to us, that copyright licensing processes in the UK rank amongst the leading countries in the world.
  • “But there is still a range of problems with copyright licensing that needs attention and sorting them out will, I have no doubt, strengthen the UK’s leadership role in creative industries even further.”
  • “If, in the second phase of the work, we can find industry-led solutions to these problems, and I am confident that we can, then innovation and economic growth across the UK’s creative and technology sectors will be further accelerated.”
  • “And the British consumer will be able to enjoy an even wider range of sensibly priced and easy to use digital services (films, tv, music etc) over the mobile and fixed internet. As a result, any justification for copyright infringement/piracy by consumers will be yet further weakened.”
