Alliance Backs Calls for a Crackdown on Film Piracy
The trade in counterfeiting and piracy is growing, putting jobs on the line and putting consumers at risk. We endorse the UK Film Council's recommendations to Government which include the introduction of legislation to give Trading Standards greater powers to clamp down on illegal trading at car boot sales as well as ensuring the Enforcement Directive includes measures to ensure an effective and harmonised enforcement of IP law across Europe. The Alliance will continue to support the UK Film Council and looks forward to working with Government and industry to ensure those whose creativity will drive forward the UK economy in the 21st century have sufficient protection to defend their ideas and sufficient incentive to innovate.
