answer text <p>The government is committed to sign and ratify the Withdrawal Agreement, which will allow for the Implementation Period until December 2020. During the Implementation Period, UK-based broadcasters will be free to broadcast to the EU with their Ofcom licence, and the government will be given an opportunity to negotiate the details of the future relationship between the EU and the UK.</p><p> </p><p>Broadcasting is not excluded or carved out of the political declaration, which is typically the case for trade agreements. Furthermore, the UK is a signatory to the Convention on Transfrontier Television which means that films and TV programmes made or produced in the UK will continue to have the status of European Works, which is of significant importance for industry.</p><p> </p><p>Ultimately, the future relationship with the EU on broadcasting, including on licensing arrangements, will depend on the exit negotiations. The UK is committed to seek the best possible arrangement for broadcasting that will work for UK businesses and audiences, and we will work closely with the sector to update them on any new developments. At the same time, the government will continue to do the responsible thing and prepare for all eventualities, including a no deal scenario.</p><p> </p>

answer text <p>The Government’s White Paper on the future relationship sets out that future cooperation on intellectual property would provide important protections for rightsholders, giving them a confident and secure basis from which to operate in and between the UK and the EU.</p><p> </p><p>As we establish our future partnership with the EU, we aim to agree continued cooperation on intellectual property, where there is mutual benefit for the UK and EU. We are open to exploring whether this should include certain cross-border copyright mechanisms and arrangements, which will need to be the subject of negotiation.</p><p> </p><p>The UK recognises and values the importance of the creative industries to the UK economy. Over and above our future arrangements with the EU, the UK is a member of many international treaties and agreements protecting copyright. This means that the majority of UK copyright works (such as films, music, books and photographs) are protected around the world, irrespective of our relationship with the EU.</p>
