Copyright is a fundamental issue in the academic life: copyright that protects your works but may prevent their diffusion; copyright that you may infringe unknowingly. In this guide, we summarise what a student and/or researcher needs to know on this subject.

This guide gives only general information on copyright law. It does not, in any case, constitute legal advice.
