Design is a British success story
Members of the All-Party Parliamentary Design & Innovation Group recently took part in a rountable discussion with Baroness Neville Role, the Minister for Intellectual Property.
Our members took the opportunity to discuss some key topics surrounding intellectual property, including:
- Cuts to design education (including a decrease in takeup at GCSE level)
- Concerns about the protection of IP rights in a culture of free pitching
- Feedback on current enforcement procedures, and how access to justice is out of reach for the vast majority of small design business.
A full write up of the session will be posted soon.
