Digital use of publications in comprehensive and upper secondary schools

In recent years, the use of digital materials in education has increased at a rapid pace. Roughly 34 million pages of copyrighted materials are scanned at educational institutions each year. The permission of the licence owner is always required for the digital copying and use of copyrighted materials for educational or research purposes.

With the Kopiosto Digital Licence, the staff and students of educational institutions can scan printed publications and copy text and images from open websites, unless the copyright owner has prohibited such copying and use. 

The Kopiosto Digital Licence allows the staff and students of educational institutions to

  • scan printed publications
  • copy and use copyrighted materials that are openly available online, unless the copyright owner has prohibited its copying or granted other permissions to the materials
  • distribute materials in the school’s closed network
  • for the purposes of distance learning, a recording can be made of a class, which can then be distributed to the students via the institution’s closed network
