Rights to the data administered by public libraries in the light of amendments of the Freedom of Information Act

Summary: Public libraries – in the focus of law – are cultural institutions taking care of not negligible values within public interest. Among others, their activities are regulated by the part of the Czech law imposing information duties on publicly funded entities (duties related to the freedom of information) and governing also re-use of the public sector information. This article deals with recent substantive amendments of the Czech Freedom of Information Act and discusses some specific legal problems, as concerns the processing of the obligatorily deposited electronic copies, along with the digitisation of the library funds.
