Copying Rules

Rules on private copying.

Sharper copyright law

With effect from 1 July 2005, it is illegal to copy entire works, such as books and course literature. Only limited parts of a book may be copied.

Under the Act on Copyright in Literary and Artistic Works (1960:729), the copying of entire books is not allowed.

The parts you have copied may only be used for private purposes. 'Private purposes' means use that may in no way be interpreted as commercial.

Please note that material from rare collections may not be copied.
