If you own a song in one format, can you legally transfer it to a different device, such as a mobile phone or MP3 player? A short video outlining the position of UK copyright law on issues such as copying, file sharing, format shifting backups and other common uses of IP. Some of these things are permitted but others are currently prohibited.

In 2011, the UK government initiated an independent review of intellectual property, carried out by Professor Ian Hargreaves: http://www.ipo.gov.uk/types/hargreave...

Currently, the government is considering making some changes to the existing Copyright, Designs and Patents Act (CDPA 1988). These videos explore those proposals and the arguments on both sides of the debate.

It is hoped that these videos will be helpful to all users of copyright: teachers, librarians, artists, producers, journalists and members of the public.

To find authoritative information on this topic, see the independent report "Private Copying and Fair Compensation: An empirical study of copyright levies in Europe" produced by Professor. Martin Kretschmer:

The video was created by Bartolomeo Meletti, with support from the Department of Law at Bournemouth University.
