The Gowers Review of Intellectual Property report (700KB PDF) was released today. I’ll comment on this when I’ve given it a read through; at 150 pages it might take me a while. It’s also worth emphasising that the report provides “recommendations” that carry no legal weight or binding, at least as far as I’m aware. As such, the British government is free to — and probably will — ignore most or all of it. Feel free to call me cynical!
