Legal Support Helpdesk

Using, producing, sharing or distributing Language Resources can trigger legal questions related to Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) management which are not always easy to sort out. For over 16 years now, ELRA has established close cooperation with legal experts to clear such IPR issues, to design licensing schemas and draft licenses, but also to provide assistance on any contractual or legal matter that may arise during the Language Resources life cycle, including acquisition, production, sharing, or distribution phases.

With this Helpdesk service fully dedicated to IPR issues, we are extending our legal support to the whole Human Language Community.
