Copyright Resources

The Copyright Committee (both current and past) has worked hard to pull together a collection of great resources on copyright issues.  Some are guidelines, some are training tools and some articulate our advocacy positions and those of others working in the area.  We have also tried to collect together useful links for you.  Do get in touch if there is anything you would like to see here that you feel is missing!
 
Please note that some of these documents simplify copyright legislation in order to provide an overview - these documents should not be taken as legal advice about copyright.
