What constitutes lawful use in the educational context?


The Copyrights and Related Rights Act 2000 includes a fair dealing exception which arise in the context of Research or Private Study and allows the copying of copyright protected work where the use will not unreasonably prejudice interests of the copyright owner. However this exception is not applicable where copying results in copies of substantially the same material being provided to more than one person at approximately the same time and for substantially the same purpose.

Additionally for the purposes of criticism or review, copyright protected work can be used lawfully where such use constitutes incidental inclusion; for example through the use of quotations and/or reference, so long as there is a sufficient acknowledgement of the author and title of the work.
