U.K. copyright law Edit
The Copyright Tribunal is an independent tribunal established pursuant to Section 145 of the UK Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (as amended). Its main role is to adjudicate in commercial licensing disputes between collecting societies and users of copyright material in their business. It does not deal with copyright infringement cases or with criminal "piracy" of copyrighted works.
The Government has announced its intention to merge the Copyright Tribunal with the Tribunals Service.
