§ Mr. Albert Roberts
asked the Minister for Trade if he will introduce measures to combat the illegal taping of records and other copyright infringements and the consequent losses to the legitimate industry.
§ Dr. Vaughan
I regard the illegal taping of records and other copyright infringements, particularly for commercial gain, as a serious and urgent problem. We are currently analysing the comments that have been received in response to the Government's Green Paper on copyright (Cmnd. 8302) with a view to taking any necessary action in this area.
