Copyrights and Data protection

In this article we will talk about copyright and the protection of personal data from the legislation both at European level and in each of the countries involved in the project REVETAX



copyrightIt is important to understand that the Member States shall provide the exclusive right to authorize or prohibit the direct or indirect, temporary or permanent reproduction by any means and in any form, of the whole or part of a work created by an author.

Any work or article will at some point be protected by the rights of the author, although in such an appeal does not mention the word copyright, including those that are published on the Internet; since the author is the owner of the copyright in the inception of the Web resource (article, animation, sound...), and enrolment in any type of registration is not necessary to make use of this right.

It is therefore appropriate to say that resources that exist on the internet have the same legislation as that applies in other areas and other formats.

The law on copyright in Europe, is given by Directive 2001/29/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 May 2001 and particularly in article 5(3) are exceptions and limitations for the use of copyright in the field of education.


The WIPO organization is the World Forum in relation to services, policies, cooperation and information in the field of intellectual property (IP). Is a body of the United Nations, self-financing, which has 188 States members and where can resolve doubts about the intellectual property

We will highlight that at the European level and within the scope of education a work may be used in relation to specific playlist acts made by libraries, educational establishments or museums accessible to the public, or by archives, which are not for direct or indirect economic or commercial advantage as well as when the use is only intended the illustration for teaching or scientific research provided that, except in the cases where impossible, the source, including the author's name, is indicated and to the extent that it is justified by the non-commercial purpose to be achieved.

With regard to the legislation in each of the countries that comprise the Revetax project, are legislated by a set of laws, rules and regulations to which we link to WIPO page by itself outside of the reader's interest

Finally we mention the Creative Commons licenses, which is a non-profit organisation which helps authors and creators to share voluntarily their job, providing licenses and free tools that allow them to take advantage of all the science, knowledge and culture available on the Internet.
