Quotes

"Propaganda and censorship are the tools of dictators. Copyright is rightly part of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and protects all of us from being abused or ripped off when we express ourselves online and offline. I am looking forward to seeing much more original and powerful parody flourishing with its new protection from copyright overreach; strong and free culture is our best safeguard against new Hitlers and also tired and tasteless Hitler memes."
Talking about the projects, Deborah Bull, Director, Cultural Partnerships, said: "The open application process across King's has delivered a wide range of ideas across a number of disciplines, each of which promises to have real impact. Partnership with the cultural sector will provide a unique opportunity for these academics to gain a fresh perspective on their thinking and ensure their ideas have genuine resonance. We look forward to seeing the outcomes of these exciting collaborations." For further information about King's College London, please visit 'King's in brief'
A spokesman for PRS said: "Whenever you play a sound recording in public, there are two separate licence fees to be paid. PRS distributes its licence fees to composers and music publishers and Phonographic Performance Ltd collects a separate licence fee which they distribute to record companies, recording artists and musicians."
The new law "aims to support reasonable use of copyright materials by law abiding people"
