A “joint statement on transfer of value/value gap” was signed by various organizations representing authors, film and music producers, broadcasting organizations, film distributors, cinema operators, football leagues and photo agencies. The statement, intended for the European Parliament Rapporteur Alex Voss, reaffirms its position in relation to the proposal for a Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market and the interpretation of some European copyright provisions regarding the liability of UCC (user uploaded content) platforms. The statement can be reviewed here

The report "Hidden value: a study of the UK IP Valuation Market", was published by the UK Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO) in late September. The report seeks to better understand why companies tend not consider the financial value of their IP assets; it does so against the backdrop of how the UK market for IP valuation is working and how can it be of assistance to such companies. The report and appendix can be reviewed here.

The UK Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO) has also published in late September the report "Independent Review of the Creative Industries". The report provides recommendations regarding “how Creative Industries can underpin the UK’s future economic growth”, such as the digitization of the IP Finance Toolkit and increasing the awareness of IP valuation. The report is available here.
