Case #19 Distribution of Annotations of a Data Set IEdit
|Actor||Researcher-Resource Compiler & Provider|
|Intended use||Distribute the annotations to an original dataset (e.g. images, broadcasts) incl. links to specific instances of the web available dataset (e.g. the hand on an image, time sequence of a film)|
|Conditions||I have asked for permission for the originals but received no reply|
|Question||Can I distribute it under the licence of my choice?
Or Do I ask for permission from sources Or Simply state the sources (attribution-like) Or Refrain from distributing it?
|Suggested legal solution|
|Legal position||The annotations, to the extent they are my own original work or constitute works that are not copyright protected (e.g. a URL) can be distributed under any licence of my choice. With regard to the inclusion of extracts from the original work see above.|
|Suggested course of action||Do not ask permission for linking but only for re-using original content. When the annotation includes original extracts it may still be deemed fair use/dealing or falling within the limitations and exceptions as a form of critical approach -in the broadest sense- of the original work (see e.g. Greek law 2121/1993, art.19).|
|Type of Terms and Conditions||Any licence of my choice.|
|Legal basis||Copyright Law. Emphasis on limitations and exceptions.|
