Code of practice for intellectual property


Guidelines will be produced on how and to what extent copyright- and related rights-protected material may be utilised for the purpose of scientific research. These guidelines will show what research-related conduct is allowed in all member states, and further list limitations and exceptions existing only in a specific member state. They will further indicate any changes of the relevant limitation- or exception-provisions due to the implementation of the new EU Copyright Directive.

A draft code of practice is available for consultation, before incorporation into the final RESPECT Code of Practice.
