Richard Hooper has published the second - and final - report of his investigation into the idea of a digital copyright exchange, as first proposed in the Hargreaves Report. His first report, published in March 2012, identified the problems that various sectors experience with copyright licensing in the digital age.
The second report discusses solutions to these problems. His central recommendation is the establishment of a Copyright Hub, which is intended to address a number of deficiencies in the current system, such as the lack of accurate data, the problem of orphan works, and the administrative burden of high-volume low-value copyright licensing.
Eversheds outlines the current problems that various sectors experience with copyright licensing, the solutions recommended by Hooper's latest report, how the Copyright Hub would work and the industry reaction so far.
