This chapter explores a particular – albeit localized and partial – counterexample to the normal tale of the futility of reform; the Hargreaves Review of Intellectual Property, an independent review of the UK intellectual property system commissioned by the UK government in 2010. The Hargreaves Review was remarkable in that, in certain limited ways, it seemed to evade this tangle of regulatory malfunction in its assessments of the copyright system. More remarkable still, its policy proposals were – for the most part – concerned with limitations and exceptions to copyright, and most of them were actually enacted into law. In this chapter, I try to see if we can learn anything about copyright’s general state of regulatory impasse from this apparent partial counterexample.
