Apart from technical, organisational and economical challenges of long-term access to digital objects, legal implications arise as well. The KEEP project, co-funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), researched the legal aspects of emulation as part of their research to create a preservation strategy based on emulation. It addresses the legal implications in France, Germany and The Netherlands as well as on European level. Insights have been gained into the legality of transferring content from old media carriers to newer ones and the reproduction of hardware into software emulators. This paper presents the results of the study, conducted by the Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF), Deutsche Nationalbibliothek (DNB) and the Koninklijke Bibliotheek (KB, the National Library of the Netherlands).
