Evolution of legal and political IP regimes (post @LSE Media Policy Project)

Autora: Loreto Corredoira 
Este blog de la prestigiosa London School of Economics publica un resumen de mi ponencia en la IAMCR de junio pasado (Dublin), en cuya edición final han colaborado Sally Broughton (@broughtonmicova) y Paul Mora, ambos investigadores del @lsemediapolicy. Les dejo con la presentación y el link.

Loreto Corredoira, Professor of Communication Law at Complutense University of Madrid, shares some initial observations from a wider research project[1] looking at the evolution of legal and political IP regimes at both international and national levels. She argues that there is potential for European countries to adopt new approaches to protect content industries, focusing more on user rights, fair use and personal freedoms.

The multinational ACTA treaty and the SOPA and PIPA legislation proposed in the US faced substantial public protest. Critics called them over-regulation that stifles markets and opportunities, and could end up asphyxiating not only the media industry but also user freedoms and constitutional rights. In response to this protest, several national governments now appear poised to adopt new approaches to copyright regulation.
In the UK, the Hargreaves Review and Richard Hooper’s subsequent copyright study  signal a true shift in the European legal framework. Similarly, in Spain, the Minister of Culture is preparing a new Law of Intellectual Property to be debated in Parliament during 2013 to reinforce the recent Ley Sinde. French President Hollande launched a review of the aggressive Hadopi Law, which is now in the process of being revoked. The French law had been the strictest in Europe because it allowed Internet access to be denied to anyone who, after three warnings, downloaded “illegal content”.
