Copyright survey (2017)

This survey seeks to update the data last collected in 2008, in order to provide an overview of copyright legislation, bodies and current issues facing music libraries and their users in countries in which IAML has members.

The responses will in the first instance be discussed by the Copyright Committee, helping to shape the committee’s future agenda. They will then be added to the IAML website, providing a resource to assist librarians with issues such as identifying relevant legislation, licensing bodies and the cross-border applicability of exceptions.

We are seeking one response per country, and ask that questions are answered to the best of respondents’ knowledge.

Please save the Word file below, provide an answer under each question, and email responses to by 19th May 2017.
