CEDRO and the University of the Basque Country reach an agreement on digital uses of copyright material

CEDRO, IFRRO’s RRO member in Spain, has recently reached an agreement with the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) regarding the use of copyright material. The agreement will allow the UPV/EHU to legally make use of material such as books and periodical publications. It means that up to 80% of the teaching activity is covered since the university works nowadays mainly in the digital environment. Students, teachers and administrative staff will benefit from the agreement, which will allow them the digital reproduction of up to 10% of each work (or one chapter of similar length). Uses of works will include: making available on their intranet, distribution and delivery by email, fixing the copies in digital media, one hard copy per person, or the incorporation of such material on internal documents or in presentations in different formats.
