An effective intellectual property system is a fundamental driver for creativity and innovation and is central to a modern, vibrant economy. Any reforms to UK copyright law aim to effectively balance the copyright framework for both rights holders and users and comply with our international obligations. The Government reviews aspects of copyright law, when appropriate, in light of its priorities. The decision on text and data mining followed one such review. We do not plan to consequently amend wider policies or to conduct a wider review of copyright law.
