The POPLA emails were released under an FoI request to London Councils and are protected by copyright. The Prankster cannot therefore make the full set of emails generally available. Here is London Councils view on copyright.
“Brief extracts of any of the material may be reproduced under the fair dealing provisions of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (sections 29 and 30) for the purposes of research for non-commercial purposes, private study, criticism, review and news reporting, subject to an acknowledgement of the copyright owner.”
The Prankster considers that he has complied with these conditions by using brief extracts for the purposes of criticism, review and news reporting, and has acknowledged the copyright owner. If London Councils wish to disagree they know his email address.
London Councils also state:
"If other people wish to view the information then they may request the information from London Councils under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. This is to ensure that, whilst London Councils meets its obligations as an open and transparent organisation under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, it is also able to retain control over the use of its copyrighted material."
If you want a copy of the emails, you will therefore have to request them yourself using the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
