The Government supports an effective international intellectual property framework which supports creative and innovative businesses at home and abroad. The UK has recently agreed trade deals with countries including Japan, Australia and New Zealand which commit them to higher standards on copyright. We will continue to advocate for and uphold high international standards for intellectual property, and any reforms to UK copyright law will comply with our international obligations.
