Copyright literacy among Portuguese information professionals, especially academic librarians, was studied as part of a multinational survey. The sample included 127 completed questionnaires. After the literature review, the data gathering methodology is explained. Then the respondent profile is presented. Data about general knowledge of copyright and opinions related to this issue are discussed. Familiarity with licenses, exceptions and other conditions of copyright access are also analysed. The familiarity regarding specific context and objects of copyright is discussed. Finally, personal opinions about copyright specific issues and aspects related to learning about copyright are presented.
