Copyright and database right

09 May 2019

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.

This content is for members only.
