Unauthorised attempts to deny service, upload information, change information, or to attempt to access non public data from this service are strictly prohibited and may be punishable to the full extent of the law of England and Wales.

Internet websites normally qualify for copyright protection and in some instances database right protection under UK law.  Each individual page is considered as a broadcast. In addition, any attempt to mount this material on another website will be considered an act of communicating of the content to the public without the consent of the copyright owner which will infringe the right of communication to the public.  Database right will also be an issue as the site itself constitutes a database regardless of the status of the individual items incorporated in it.

Copyright in a broadcast of web pages covers the signal sent whereas copyright and database right cover the contents, so copyright would be infringed by:

  • Copying of screen pages onto a computer
  • Photographing multiple pages from the screen
  • Showing screen pages in public to a paying audience
  • Including screen pages on another website
