"The Government has asked Professor Ian Hargreaves to lead a short
review of the Intellectual Property (IP) framework (law and
practice) to consider how it might be changed in the interest of
promoting innovation and economic growth. The Review will take
into account the conclusions and evidence provided to previous
reviews in this area, but we invite fresh evidence on the extent
to which the current IP system successfully promotes innovation
and growth and how it could do so more effectively."
"[...] the Review seeks economic data and related evidence which
are methodologically sound, robust and clearly sourced. Responses
relying on empirical data should clearly identify the methodology
used and any critical assumptions relied upon, identify the
source(s) of the data, and provide a copy of or a citation to each
such source. At the same time, the Review welcomes evidence in the
form of case-studies and individual experiences which illustrate
one or more of the issues under consideration."
Submissions should be sent to the IP and Growth Review Team, by 4
March 2011. They prefer submissions to callforevidence@...
Before we blunder into this minefield without a map, would anyone like
to offer hints and tips about what would be best to submit?
