Whilst still serving as a MP, Mike wrote four internationally acclaimed reports on the future direction of Intellectual Property and is credited with a number of IP policy initiatives and law changes, changing the direction of Intellectual Property protection in the UK.



Mike’s flagship ‘Follow The Money’ report is featured as one of the four key focus areas announced in the European Commission’s draft Regulation on media portability – its first public proposal to modernise and adapt the legal framework in place to better suit intellectual property rights (IPR) in a digital age as part of its Digital Single Market strategy.
