Photocopying in Swedish Schools.
Mueller, Joran
To what extent and on what conditions may copies of literary and artistic works be made for educational purposes? In Sweden the main provisions pertaining to this matter are to be found as from 1 July 1973, in a special agreement and no longer in law. The agreement refers also to the right to make copies of photographs for the schools. The above-mentioned agreement is probably the first of its kind and is therefore described in this document. Copies of literary and artistic works as well as of photographs have for a long time been made on a considerable scale within the frame of the educational system in Sweden. This copying has generally been made without the consent of the persons entitled to grant the right to photocopying (the title-holder). The legal support in the Swedish Copyright Act and Photography Act being considered insufficient, negotiations began in 1967 to regularize questions of copyright within the frame of the educational system. These negotiations have resulted in an agreement concerning graphic and photographic reproduction for the schools. As regards copying at the universities the negotiations are still going on.
