Overview of excluded materials

There are two general types of exclusions:

  • Works that are excluded from copyright generally
  • Works that are excluded specifically from the CLNZ licences

It should be noted that the absence of a copyright statement alone cannot be taken to mean that a work is not subject to copyright. It is prudent to assume that copyright applies to a work even if there isn’t the familiar © copyright symbol or a statement indicating that rights are reserved, except in situations where there is a clear statement otherwise.
