The complexities of the BBC are a trial to many of us. So it’s no surprise that it was confusing.
Your article headlined “BBC loses head of IP after shake-up announcement” (The Lawyer, 1 May) reported the departure of the BBC’s “head of the intellectual property and litigation department”.
Fred Croft was the BBC’s legal adviser and, as such, was in charge of all the BBC’s central legal departments.
Following his departure, Sarah Jones, currently the head of litigation, will be taking on the additional role of acting legal adviser.
All the other heads of department continue in their current roles.
The position of head of intellectual property has been vacant since December last year and the position is currently under review following the BBC’s reorganisation.
