The paper focuses on the European project of the European Digital Library (the “EDL“). The EDL project aims at making Europe’s cultural and scientific heritage (books, films, maps, photographs, music, etc.) accessible through one multilingual internet access point. Within the context of the EDL project, there is a number of copyright-related issues to be resolved – namely a possibility to digitise, making orphan works and out-of-print works available, as well as issues related to the so-called web-harvesting – whilst it is mandatory that all existing national, European, as well as international, legal norms are respected. All copyright-related matters shall be consulted with rightholders and their representatives. The Ministry of Culture has established an informal working group representing interested parties (rightholders, libraries, museums, galleries and archives). A special Copyright Subgroup of the High Level Expert Group has been established by the European Commission. Several recommendations for dealing with copyright-related issues were prepared. Similar questions have been studied by other institutions and non-EU countries.
