The government should not change UK copyright laws until supposed problems with the current framework can be assessed in light of how a new 'digital copyright exchange' (DCE) works, the Publishers Association has said.

Richard Mollet, chief executive of the association, said that the benefits the DCE could bring could eradicate the need for new exceptions to copyright to be introduced.

The government is currently consulting on proposed changes to the UK's intellectual property (IP) framework. The consultation was launched after the government received a report that assessed the way the current framework works from university academic Professor Ian Hargreaves. Hargreaves' report contained several recommendations, including liberalising the use of copyright in some cases.
