Our New Minister for Intellectual Property

Baroness Lucy Neville-Rolfe was appointed undersecretary of state for intellectual property in the recent ministerial reshuffle, replacing Lord Younger. In a guest post in Managing Intellectual Property (Click here to read), she sets out a little of her background and the government’s aim to “make the UK the best place to start and invest in innovative companies”. It was pleasing to see that she recognises the importance to industry of protecting rights in this country’s innovation in technology and design and talks about better enforcement of rights.

What this will mean in practice we shall have to wait to see, but we hope she will recognise that, for enforcement of the rights to be effective, it is important for those rights to be properly established from the start. Starting off with the right professional advice can save on costly litigation later on.
