Intellectual Property Protection

Lord Jenkin has mentioned in debates on the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill that he has received representations from numerous organisations representing intellectual property rights holders, amongst them the Authors' Licensing and Collecting Society. He is a supporter of intellectual property rights and has spoken of the need to educate consumers on the subject as "it is clear that quite a lot of the public think that it is perfectly all right to download all sorts of things on their computers and telephones without paying for it."

In the same debate, he stated that intellectual property rights "are property rights and have been seen as such by the courts for very many years."

Open Access

He supports the Open Access policy of David Willetts
