The University holds two statutory copyright licences provide specific extensions to the terms of the Act in relation to the copying and reproduction for the purposes of research and teaching.

These extensions are explained briefly under the next two main headings and there are answers to specific questions about copyright issues and problems in the University FAQs service.
