Copyright and the law

The Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (as amended) protects the rights of authors or creators of original material from having their material unlawfully exploited. You have a personal responsibility to keep within the law – to infringe copyright is illegal.

The University has a Photocopying and Scanning Licence which permits it to copy or scan material and place it on a network under certain strict conditions. If you need information on the licence see your subject librarian.
