Commencement Orders listed in the ‘Changes to Legislation’ box as not yet applied may bring this prospective version into force.
There are outstanding changes not yet made by the legislation.gov.uk editorial team to Copyright (Visually Impaired Persons) Act 2002. Any changes that have already been made by the team appear in the content and are referenced with annotations.
Revised legislation carried on this site may not be fully up to date. Changes and effects are recorded by our editorial team in lists which can be found in the ‘Changes to Legislation’ area. Where those effects have yet to be applied to the text of the legislation by the editorial team they are also listed alongside the legislation in the affected provisions. Use the ‘more’ link to open the changes and effects relevant to the provision you are viewing.
This section lists the commencement orders yet to be applied to the whole Act. These effects are included in this view as they may be (but won’t necessarily be) relevant to the specific provision that you are viewing. Where applicable the commencement orders are listed under two headings, firstly those that bring some part of the Act you are viewing into force and secondly, those that bring into force legislation that affects some part of the legislation you are viewing. If you are viewing a prospective version or there is a prospective version available there may be commencement orders listed here that are relevant to the provision you are viewing.
In the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (c. 48), after section 31D insert—
(1)The Secretary of State may make an order under this section if it appears to him that the making of copies—
(a)under section 31B; or
(b)under a licence granted under a licensing scheme that has been notified under section 31D,
has led to infringement of copyright on a scale which, in the Secretary of State’s opinion, would not have occurred if section 31B had not been in force, or the licence had not been granted.
(2)The order may prohibit one or more named approved bodies, or one or more specified categories of approved body, from—
(a)acting under section 31B; or
(b)acting under a licence of a description specified in the order.
(3)The order may disapply—
(a)the provisions of section 31B; or
(b)the provisions of a licence, or a licensing scheme, of a description specified in the order,
in respect of the making of copies of a description so specified.
(4)If the Secretary of State proposes to make an order he must, before making it, consult—
(a)such bodies representing copyright owners as he thinks fit; and
(b)such bodies representing visually impaired persons as he thinks fit.
(5)If the Secretary of State proposes to make an order which includes a prohibition he must, before making it, consult—
(a)if the proposed order is to apply to one or more named approved bodies, that body or those bodies;
(b)if it is to apply to one or more specified categories of approved body, to such bodies representing approved bodies of that category or those categories as he thinks fit.
(6)An approved body which is prohibited by an order from acting under a licence may not apply to the Copyright Tribunal under section 121(1) in respect of a refusal or failure by a licensing body to grant such a licence.”
This timeline shows the different points in time where a change occurred. The dates will coincide with the earliest date on which the change (e.g an insertion, a repeal or a substitution) that was applied came into force. The first date in the timeline will usually be the earliest date when the provision came into force. In some cases the first date is 01/02/1991 (or for Northern Ireland legislation 01/01/2006). This date is our basedate. No versions before this date are available. For further information see the Editorial Practice Guide and Glossary under Help.
