AvÝs legal relatiu a la reutilitzaciˇ de la informaciˇ

The Law 37/2007, of 16th November, on the re-use of public sector information, which transposes the Directive 2003/98/CE of the European Parliament and Council, governs the re-use of public information in the possession of administrations and bodies in which they have a majority share, that is to say, the right of all potential market agents to the re-use of information from public documents. In accordance with this rule, the Administration permits the reproduction, distribution and public communication of the work and, furthermore, the transformation of the work in order to make derived works, for everyone and without time limits, and provided that it does not contradict any license or notice that a work may hold.

In order to re-use the information, the following conditions must be followed:

  • a) Not distort the meaning of the information.
  • b) Always quote the source of the information.
  • c) State the date of the latest update of the information.

Other forms of reuse

Similarly, re-use can be limited by the protection of other priority legal rights, such as the protection of personal data (object of another legal notice), privacy or third party intellectual property rights. The re-use of work protected by intellectual property rights can be carried out by means of the use of open content licences, such as those of Creative Commons, which give certain exploitation rights of work. In content where this type of licence is applied, re-use in the established conditions is permitted.
