Abstract

This short paper explores the tensions inherent in intellectual property law and freedom of expression from a UK perspective. It considers the barriers IP law puts in place to creative ideas and free expression, and the impact of the changes in UK law in 2014 that enhanced exceptions for key areas such as criticism, and parody and pastiche. It considers some key case law that tested the boundaries of the law in relation to free expression, and considers whether the 2014 exceptions favor a broader approach to freedom of expression.
