New copyright act effective as of March 1, 2018 (relevant for German customers only)

05. December 2017

On March 1, 2018 a new copyright act, the Urheberrechts-Wissensgesellschafts-Gesetz (UrhWissG) adopted on June 30, 2017 by the German Bundestag, will come into force.

This will severely affect the delivery capabilities of all German libraries and library networks for commercial customers. The extent of the restrictions is not yet fully foreseeable.

As a customer of FIZ AutoDoc you can rest assured that we are willing and able to respond to this challenge through our co-operations with international partners.

We will keep you up to date on the further developments. Should you have any questions on this topic, please feel free to contact our service team at phone no. +49-7247/808-333 or autodoc(at)

Please note: Users outside of Germany will not be affected by this change in law.
