Comparative analysis of the current state of copyright law regarding the possibility for libraries to digitise and lend books under national and European law.
The study was conducted by Centrum Cyfrowe in partnership with the Future Law Lab flagship project within the Priority Research Area Society of the Future under the Strategic Programme Excellence Initiative at Jagiellonian University.
Centrum Cyfrowe Foundation supports users of digital technologies in improving their skills and competencies related to openness and cooperation. We collaborate with institutions to make sure that they work in an open manner in order to carry out their social mission. We work towards adjusting regulations and using legal tools to support the needs and rights of users, as they participate in the open circulation of resources online. We diagnose social and cultural changes that are taking place in our society with the influence of digital technologies, and we introduce a civic responsibility perspective to the public debate on technology.
