BPI response to Online Harms White Paper08 April 2019 - Press release
Geoff Taylor, Chief Executive BPI & BRIT Awards, said:
"The BPI welcomes the global lead the UK government is taking to make the big tech platforms much more accountable for the content they host and the online harm they enable. However, after all the promises made around the Digital Charter, it is disappointing that the opportunity has been missed to create a framework that also addresses IP infringement online, and the economic harm it causes to consumers and to business.
"This is one of the biggest inhibitors to the growth of our Creative Industries - at a time when they should be one of the UK's top priorities after Brexit. We strongly urge the Government to listen to the many concerned voices in the wider creative community, and to think through its approach again."
