Internet - Can I print or download material from the Internet?

Copyright laws generally apply to material on the Internet, in the same way as it applies to other material. Many web sites have specific copyright statements that relate to the content on that site and tell you what you can and canít do with it.
However, where there is no copyright statement, this does not necessarily mean you have an implied licence to copy the material (either by printing or downloading it). In some circumstances you may copy the material without permission for your own research or private study purposes.
