Government Affairs & Policy
Current UK Intellectual Property (IP) legislation generally serves the software industry well. The principles of UK and often European law, particularly on copyright, provide software manufacturers with the legal framework to protect their investment and creativity. The UK is a world leader in incubating creative software designs that can be readily brought to market. The UK system enables rights holders to protect their IP and go to market with confidence that will, in turn, enable further research and development for future creativity and investment.Download our Government Affairs & Policy brochure.
