Notable aspects of current legislation

Law 21/2014 of 4 November, amending the revised text of the Intellectual Property Law, approved by Royal Legislative Decree 1/1996, of 12 April, and Law 1/2000, of January 7, of Civil Procedure, has substantially amended Article 32 on citations and reviews and illustration for educational or scientific research purposes.

The main implication to be taken into account in relation to the publication of teaching materials is to know how to distinguish between citations and acts of reproduction, distribution and public communication to illustrate activities, as well as educational ones.
