Centre for Intellectual Property Policy and Management
The Centre for Intellectual Property and Policy Management is a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence and a leading centre for research on the legal, economic and policy aspects of intellectual property rights in the creative industries and in the field of emerging technologies.
The Centre is a multi-disciplinary hub bringing evidence-based, academic rigour to the regulation of intellectual property. The Centre’s research has become an increasingly important resource to those involved in the legislative process. Evidence-based research for use in policy making is at the heart of Centre’s ethos.
Recent research that has informed and influenced policy includes the Centre’s studies on orphan works, copyright exemption for parody, open standards, authors’ earnings and copyright term extension. To enhance the impact of its research, the Centre holds annual symposia where the views of policy makers, social scientists and lawyers are presented and discussed.
