In response to the Government's expected announcement tomorrow morning that it is supporting the findings of Professor Hargreaves' report 'Digital Opportunity: A Review of Intellectual Property and Growth', Peter Bradwell, campaigner at Open Rights Group said:
"Exceptions like the right to parody, which many other countries already have, will bring huge rewards for creators and consumers. A right to parody will lead to a blossoming of legitimate spoofs and satires by the public, comedians and campaigners alike. The Government should be loudly applauded for wanting to modernise the UK's copyright laws."
