The BBC have reported that David Cameron has suggested that the UK's copyright laws should be updated to allow technology businesses more freedom to innovate as well as decriminalising individuals who wish to transfer formats or create backup copies. Good news if it goes ahead as planned, but the danger is that the rights controllers will lobby very hard to ensure that as little as possible changes.
