Public Bill Committee: Digital Economy Bill: Copyright etc where broadcast retransmitted by cable (25 Oct 2016)

Matthew Hancock: Terrific! I am delighted to respond. As we know, clause 28 will repeal section 73 of the Copyright, Designs and Patent Act 1988, which currently provides that copyright in a broadcast of public service broadcasting services, and any work in the broadcast, that is retransmitted by cable is not infringed when the broadcast is receivable in the area of the retransmission. In effect, that means...

Public Bill Committee: Digital Economy Bill: Offences: infringing copyright and making available right (25 Oct 2016)

Kevin Brennan: ...any successful legal cases indicates that people are being very successfully scammed out of money because they are too afraid to resist the trolls who come to them saying, “You have infringed copyright.” The fact that there have not been legal cases should be a cause for concern, not complacency. The Minister might like to give that further consideration. As we have made clear,...

Public Bill Committee: Digital Economy Bill: Enforcement of sections 15 and 19 (20 Oct 2016)

Claire Perry: make them stop —how can it be that we are not considering blocking? Of course, we do that for other sites. I know it is not applicable to every form of illegal content, but I am very struck by copyright infringement, which generates take-down notices very swiftly, and upon which the entire provision of internet service providers and ancillary services act. I would be really...

Public Bill Committee: Digital Economy Bill: Internet pornography: requirement to prevent access by persons under the age of 18 (20 Oct 2016)

Thangam Debbonaire: ...against requiring ISPs to block porn sites. As my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield, Heeley said, they are already required to block other sites. If we require ISPs to block sites that offend copyright laws, I really do not understand the problem with requiring them to block sites that provide pornography to children.

Public Bill Committee: Higher Education and Research Bill: United Kingdom Research and Innovation (18 Oct 2016)

Gordon Marsden: the responsibility of the Department for Education. I imagine that the Minister will comment on that. In amendment 333, we make specific suggestions about how the process might be accomplished. We do not claim copyright; the Royal Society and many other learned bodies and institutions made suggestions, but they are ones that we are happy to share with the Committee today as they...

UK Exit from the European Union — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (17 Oct 2016)

Andrea Jenkyns: ...background, with people pulling together and looking at everything, including trade deals. It is such a big area—I am involved in the all-party group on music and we have to look at things such as copyright laws. It is massive, as we all know. A blow-by-blow account will not be useful for Britain—in my personal opinion it could harm us in the long run—although I respect...

Libraries, Bookshops and Booksellers - Motion to Take Note (13 Oct 2016)

Baroness Rebuck: ...that. But we do not know whether we will continue to have access to the single market, whether our exports will attract tariffs, whether we will continue unimpeded to hire the essential international staff we need, or even whether intellectual copyright will continue to be adequately protected. The entire publishing industry supports more than 200,000 workers in the UK and there are 2,270...

Public Bill Committee: Digital Economy Bill: Examination of Witnesses (11 Oct 2016)

Nigel Adams: Q Mr Nowak, you alluded earlier to the element of the Bill that you support and referred to musicians. The Bill is trying to bring in measures that would equalise the measures for copyright theft. That is really good thing to try, and the Musicians Union is very supportive of that measure. Is there anything else that you think would strengthen the Bill in terms of protecting rights holders?...

Public Bill Committee: Digital Economy Bill: Examination of Witnesses (11 Oct 2016)

...thought the Government were not trying to criminalise in this case. Our position is that if the Government are going to extend the sentence and have the same sentence online as offline for criminal copyright infringement—that is to say, 10 years—then they need to be very careful about how the lines are drawn, because the offences are quite different. Offline, in the real world,...

Aleppo and Syria (11 Oct 2016)

Peter Grant: ...who are left to prevent those appalling statistics from getting any worse? I am a great fan of the Scots-Australian singer-songwriter Eric Bogle. I did not get his permission to quote his song, but I hope he will not mind the breach of copyright. Many years ago, in response to another conflict, he wrote: “And have you seen the madmen who strut the world’s stage Threatening our...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Security (11 Oct 2016)

Sam Gyimah: other jurisdictions, and has no plans to do so in the future. The National Offender Management Service can provide foreign jurisdictions access to a range of information covered by Crown Copyright, including accredited programmes and related assessments and training where there is no, or minimal impact upon resources. This material is delivered in return for a fee, under a licence...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Aviation Safety: Drones (15 Sep 2016)

Michael Fabricant: My constituent Lesley Smith administers Tutbury castle and she tells me that drones are not only a danger to aircraft; they also affect privacy. They affect copyright law. They are also a danger to people who may be visiting the castle: the drone may run out of power and fall on to their heads. When will we see tighter instructions and education about how to use drones? Incidentally, Mr...

Digital Economy Bill (13 Sep 2016)

Neil Carmichael: ...a problem for small businesses, as I said. These matters need to be dealt with. I want to endorse something that my hon. Friend the Member for Folkestone and Hythe (Damian Collins) talked about: copyright and protection of intellectual property. He made a strong point. The Culture, Media and Sport Committee will benefit from his expertise in this matter. He rightly pointed out that...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Internet (2 Aug 2016)

Jo Johnson: ..., representatives of the music and film industries, and government officials. Since the instigation of these roundtables, Google, Yahoo! and Bing have all taken steps to reduce the prominence of copyright infringing websites in their search results. These steps have included algorithm changes as well as changes to the autocomplete suggestions offered to users. The discussions are...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Arts: Royalties (20 Jul 2016)

Jo Johnson: ...on safe harbour. We are strongly committed to working constructively with industry on these issues. The Government agrees that it should not be possible to benefit from encouraging the posting of copyright infringing content through safe harbours, and that the rules governing who is responsible for such content should be clear. In developing the UK’s copyright framework going...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Ministry of Defence: Maps (14 Jul 2016)

Mark Lancaster: digital form, in many cases issued and used digitally, and only printed as required. The accounting value of our holdings is rated as 'zero'as they have no realisable financial value due to copyright and licensing constraints. The value to Defence of the material held in the databases is impossible to quantify.

Online Abuse: Creative Industries (7 Jul 2016)

Ed Vaizey: .... Sadly, I was not in my place to hear the entire speech of my hon. Friend the Member for Selby and Ainsty (Nigel Adams), but I heard him in yesterday’s debate, when he talked so eloquently about copyright. Today, he widened his remarks to include general support for the music industry and particularly for live music. The hon. Member for Dundee West (Chris Law), who is the other...
