There is a wide range of copyright issues related to research data. Therefore, information on copyright is split into four sub-sections in the DataWiz knowledge base:
- First, we address the legal status of research data. Are research data protected by copyright and if yes, under which conditions?
- Thereafter, we discuss the ownership of research data. In other words: who is holding the copyright, if copyright protection applies?
- We outline the circumstances under which your research data may be affected by the copyright of third parties and how you can avoid copyright infringements when publishing your data.
- The section concludes with a note on (unintentionally) waiving copyright upon publication.
