Slovakian Out-of-Commerce legislation in force

The Slovakian Out-of-Commerce legislation, based on the Extended Collective Licence (ECL) scheme, has come into force on 29 October 2014.

More information can be found on the website of the Slovak national library (http://www.snk.sk/?zoznam-obchodne-nedostupnych-diel, only in Slovak), together with the first part of the list of works (http://www.snk.sk/swift_data/source/SNK_2014/ISBN_Obchodne_nedostupne_diela.xls),
which are considered to be out-of-commerce, in case there are no objections within three months from the inclusion into the list.

The IFRRO member LITA is currently negotiating with the Slovak national library and LIC, responsible for the digitisation project, in order to provide a system for the making available of out-of-commerce works. The service is expected to be launched towards the end of 2015.
