Letter - CIPR: Ofcom is the ideal future model

The NLA's claim that we do not understand its position is pure hokum - the NLA tells our members that if they copy, they have no choice but to buy an NLA licence; and that if our members do not copy, they have a duty to sign a legal form to that effect.

But the CIPR does not think that Ofcom itself should regulate newspaper copyright - its expertise lies in other areas. We do believe, though, that Ofcom provides an ideal model of arm's-length regulation.

It is time to write off the NLA.

Francis Ingham, head of PA, CIPR.
