Directive of 11 March 1996 on database protection does not apply to databases that are not protected by copyright law or by the sui generis right of the database producer

« By database is intended: a collection of works, data or other elements, independent, systematically or methodically organised and individually accessible through digital means or others ». If article 1.2 of Directive 96/9/CE of 11 March 1996 on the legal protection of databases offers a general definition of the latter, the text is however limited to those databases that are protected by copyright or by the rights sui generis of the producer of databases.
