This paper explores frame theory as a tool for making the value systems that underpin our understandings of information policy more explicit. Some empirical evidence is presented which suggests that the dominant discourse in information policy has been framed by political economy. The limitations of the political economy frame are considered, particularly in the light of alternative, non-market, conceptions of information, and the emergence of human rights legislation. These issues are discussed with special reference to aspects of copyright law, including moral rights, principles of proportionality and fairness, and rewards for creativity. Finally, the implications for policy makers are considered, notably the tendency to Popperian incrementalism and its ability to accommodate paradigm shifts.
