The number of successsful prosecutions for infringment of UK copyright laws has increased, according to a report into intellectual property crime published this week by the Intellectual Property Crime Group.
The report, which found that 75 percent of all criminal copyright cases end in a positive conviction, highlights the serious consequences of copyright infringement and is a reminder to colleges and universities of the importance of making staff and learners aware of copyright.
A statement from the IPO and a downloadable pdf of the 70 page report are accessible from the Intellectual Property Office website.
