Application for rights of use of Charts.
The work to create navigational charts is a creative activity that is protected by the Swedish Copyright Act (1960:729).
The Swedish State accordingly asserts copyright to general maps, geological maps and nautical charts, as well as databases and other input material. The Swedish Maritime Administration owns the rights to Swedish nautical charts. Anyone wishing to produce a follow-on product based on the Swedish Maritime Administration’s material must contact the Swedish Maritime Administration to obtain an agreement on usage rights. There is a fee charged for the right to use navigational chart information, which varies with the extent of the use.
