English: Objective of this report is to present the key legal issues with regard to Language Resources (LR) re-use, particularly in Machine Translation (MT) and Machine Processing (MP) settings, provide a simple report as to the permitted acts and make key policy suggestions as to amendments in the relevant bodies of legislation.

LR processing requires the use and re-use of information of various kinds, in a variety of ways, by different types of organisations and, as a result, it involves a wide range of legal regimes. It is mostly related to Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), but it may also involve Personal Data Protection, Public Sector Information and Geodata Regulation.

In order to assess the conditions under which LR re-use in MT and MP may lawfully take place, we need to appreciate the acts it involves, the degree to which they are regulated by different types of laws and the permissions that someone needs to obtain in order to perform such acts.
