Electronic Legal Deposit: No Digital Copying

Under the terms of the Legal Deposit Libraries Act 2003 and the Legal Deposit (Non-Print Works) Regulations 2013 no digital copying of electronic legal deposit (eLD) material is allowed. It is not permitted to download, email, cut and paste, make screenshots or take photographs of PC screens.

Printing, however, is permitted within normal copyright limits (i.e. one chapter or 10%, whichever is greater, of a book and one article from each issue of a journal).
