Digital Copyright Exchange Feasibility Study
I would like to thank Dr Ros Lynch, head of the DCE Feasibility Study secretariat, who has ledthe management of the process and the team, and taken a major part in the analysis behind,and creation of, this report. Thanks are also due to the members of our team – Jo Sampson(who left us in January) and Esther Bernaldo de Quiros for efciently scheduling a large number of face to face meetings, Gavin Miller for his thorough analysis of the responses to the Call for Evidence and Ben Mitra-Khan (an IPO economist) for his help with the analysis of responsesand the market denitions.I would also like to thank John Alty, Ed Quilty and many of their colleagues at the IPO inLondon’s Bloomsbury Street, where the Study is based, for all their help and guidance in thiscomplex and contentious world of intellectual property. Charlotte Heyes who heads up theimplementation of the Government’s response to the Hargreaves Review, including the parallelcopyright consultation into orphan works, extended collective licensing and exceptions tocopyright has always been accessible and helpful to us. Nadia Vally who heads up the CollectingSocieties Team provided useful comments, particularly in relation to collective managementorganisations.I would like to thank the twelve members of the Advisory Panel who have worked with us on thisrst diagnostic report – Paul Brown, Sarah Faulder, Spencer Hyman, Simon Juden, AnthonyLilley, Jeff Lynn, Richard Mollet, Najma Rajah, Sophia Robb, Geoff Taylor, Jon Webster andBen White. The members of the Panel were asked to act in the best interests of the creativeindustries as a whole rather than in the somewhat narrower interests of their own organisations.They did. When we move on in April 2012 to Phase 2 of the work, some of these Advisory Panelmembers will stand down to make room for the different skills required in Seeking Solutions.Finally, thanks to all the 117 organisations and individuals who took the time to respond to theCall for Evidence and to the many organisations and individuals who made the time to haveface to face meetings with us in the period December 2011 to March 2012. 90 meetings havetaken place in that period with Ros and myself. We will be visiting many of you again as wemove towards solutions.In the interests of full transparency, it would be appropriate to declare my personal interests inrelation to certain organisations that appear in this report – ALCS, BBC, NUJ, Directors UK,BFI, Informa plc.My wife the author Meredith Hooper is a member of the Authors Collecting Society (ALCS). Mydaughter, Rachel Byrne, is a journalist in the BBC reporting on Parliament and a member of theNUJ. A son, Tom, is a lm director, a member of Directors UK and a director of the British FilmInstitute. I was Chairman of Informa plc and still hold shares in the company.Richard Hooper CBEIntellectual Property Ofce21 Bloomsbury StreetLondon WC1B 3HF
