Click to access 2014005.pdf

The Government’s new Intellectual Property Bill has had its first reading in the House of Lords on 9 May 2013 – second reading due on 22 May 2013.

Clause 19 in the attached Bill appears to amend section 22 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, which permits a public body withholding publication in certain circumstances.

Clause 19 in the attached Bill will hopefully govern the circumstances for the release of raw data sets, and this will be kept under review as to whether this is the promised amendment to address concerns about the immediate unfettered disclosure of raw data by Higher Education Institutions.
