New IPO report

Published on Tuesday 7 February 2023

If, like me, you’re a copyright geek – or you’re just interested in the ongoing economics of streaming conversation in the UK – the IPO has published some interesting research on reversion rights and contract adjustment rights in copyright law. The DCMS select committee’s big music streaming report proposed adding both those rights to the UK copyright system. Within the music community, I think it’s fair to say it’s a divisive topic. The report was commissioned to inform the ongoing debate rather than offer an opinion. There’s an update in today’s CMU Daily or you can access the full report on the IPO site here.
