Help with copyright for creators, media professionals, entrepreneurs, and students

A spring clean at home surfaced an article on 'copyright user' from some time ago, which I ripped out of a magazine.  I have been meaning to share it, so here it is with a couple of related websites.  There are also a range of books available on the topic in the library.

“ is an online resource aimed at making UK copyright law accessible to creators, media professionals, entrepreneurs, students, and members of the public.”

" if you want to get permission to use somebody else's work, or want to know about how copyright relates to your own work."

Copyright Guide for University Students (JISC Legal - 31 December 2014)

"...sets out to answer questions that university students may have about copyright.  It is intended as a document staff can provide to students to inform them about the basics of copyright enabling them to protect their own work and to use other people’s materials lawfully."
NB: JISC legal has now closed, so this guide won't be updated.
