The Baltic Post LEGAL DISCLAIMER
This document was created using a Contractology template available at http://www.freenetlaw.com.
This website is provided “as is” without any representations or warranties, express or implied. The Baltic Post makes no representations or warranties in relation to this website or the information and materials provided on this website.
Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing paragraph, The Baltic Post does not warrant that:
- This website will be constantly available, or available at all; or
- The information on this website is complete, true, accurate or non-misleading.
Nothing on this website constitutes, or is meant to constitute, advice of any kind. [If you require advice in relation to any [legal, financial or medical] matter you should consult an appropriate professional.]
Fair Dealing in United Kingdom Law
Under the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (CDPA), fair dealing is limited to the following purposes: research and private study (both must be non-commercial), criticism, review, and news reporting (sections 29, 30, 178). Although not actually defined as a fair dealing, incidental inclusion of a copyrighted work in an artistic work, sound recording, film, broadcast or cable programme doesn’t infringe copyright.
Contrary to the often stated view, the provisions of section 29 of the CDPA do not restrict the amount of a literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work that may be copied for the purposes of non-commercial research or private study to a “reasonable proportion” of the work or to single copies of the work, where the copies are made by the researcher or student himself. Such restrictions only apply to copies made by or on behalf of a librarian (by virtue of s. 40), or by a person, other than the researcher or student himself, who knows or has reason to believe that “it will result in copies of substantially the same material being provided to more than one person at substantially the same time and for substantially the same purpose” (by virtue of paragraph 29(3)b).
For copying beyond the boundaries of fair dealing, universities and schools in the UK obtain licenses from a national copyright collective, the UK Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA). Under these licenses, multiple copies of portions of copyrighted works can be made for educational purposes. Therefore all material contained within The Baltic Post is subject to the terms dictated under the copyright, designs and patents act 1988 (CDPA) with reference to Fair Dealing in United Kingdom Law.
