The new Spanish Law of Legal Deposit

The new Law of Legal Deposit was approved by the Spanish Parliament in July of 2011

The main topics of this law are:

  • Before, the printer requested the legal deposit number, now with the new law, the publisher is the one who has to request the legal deposit number.
  • The bibliographic, visual, sound, audiovisual and digital heritage will be copyright protected.
  • The legal deposit will protect the works in both tangible and intangible format.
  • The archive of electronic publications on line will be created. When the domain is Spanish, the obligation to ask for deposit number is for the owner of this domain.
  • From now on, the documents must be deposited as a whole, for instance, all issues of a serial publication must be deposited.
