Flexible IP regime vital, says UK digital strategy
A dynamic and flexible IP regime is vital for innovation to flourish in the UK, according to a digital strategy launched by the UK government yesterday.
The strategy, “to make Britain the best place in the world to start and grow a digital business”, was revealed by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.
As part of the strategy, the UK is determined to ensure that IP rules keep up with technological change.
The government will conduct research into 3D printing technology and how IP rights apply to 3D files and products.
