Artworks typically include paintings, sculptures, drawings, engravings photographs, buildings, models of buildings, and works of artistic craftsmanship.

You can copy artworks for study and research, as long as the following ‘fairness factors’ apply:

  • the purpose and character of the dealing – is it genuinely for study or research?
  • the nature of the material – is something ‘new’ being created from the copied material?
  • the possibility of obtaining the material commercially
  • the effect of the dealing upon the potential market for the material
  • the amount copied in relation to the whole of the material
