Copyright and database right
This factsheet is intended as an outline of the relevant provisions but it is not comprehensive and should not be relied on as authoritative; in the interests of ease of use, many of the explanations are simplified. Specific advice should be obtained on any particular issues.
In addition, this 2019 version has been revised at a time of uncertainty around the consequences of Brexit. While Brexit is not presently anticipated to have a substantial effect on copyright and database right, it is possible that there may be changes to copyright and database right law (and/or its interpretation) following Brexit should the UK move away from harmonised EU law/interpretation.
