Copyright exceptions

The information in this section is adapted from information provided by the Intellectual Property Office under an Open Government Licence

As well as owning copyright works yourself, you may wish to make use of someone else’s copyright protected works. There are certain very specific situations where you may be permitted to do so without seeking permission from the owner. These can be found in the copyright sections of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (as amended).
