Any reproduction is subject to current legislation and to the agreement concluded with the Centre français d'exploitation du droit de copie (CFC):- less than 10% of a book and less than 30% of a periodical.
Extension to the right to take photographsThe BnF extends digital photography to copyrighted documents and in all the reading rooms. This change, made possible by the evolution of legislation, will make study and research work easier.
