The organisation representing the UK music industry has called on the British government to hold internet service providers (ISPs) to account for online piracy post-Brexit.
UK Music made the claim as part of its 2017 manifesto, where it stated that “initiatives should be developed to place responsibility on ISPs and require them to have a duty of care for copyright protected music”.
In the manifesto, the organisation said that withdrawal from the EU allows the UK government to make changes to reduce piracy.
However, it did add that Brexit “does not require substantial changes to the UK copyright framework”.
“This continuity is critical to ensuring confidence amongst music businesses. There is no evidence of the need for new exceptions to copyright.”
