Crown copyright news

Posted by Megan on March 4, 2011

This announcement may have gone unnoticed back in December 2010:

“Great news! Crown Copyright and Licensing (CCL) is pleased to announce that permission to reproduce Government of Canada works is no longer required, in part or in whole, and by any means, for personal or public non-commercial purposes, or for cost-recovery purposes, unless otherwise specified in the material you wish to reproduce.”

The US federal government does not copyright its publications, but the Canadian government had previously always officially automatically restricted use of its publications.
