The Finnish Government appoints the Copyright Council for three years at a time to assist the Ministry of Education and Culture in copyright matters and to issue opinions on the application of the Copyright Act. The Council is composed of representatives of the major right holders and users of protected works. The chair, vice-chair and at least one member are impartial.
Anyone can request an opinion from the Copyright Council − private persons, business enterprises, organisations, the police, authorities and courts of law, whether or not they have personal interests at stake. The opinions are given either in Finnish or in Swedish
