Though most of the legal and normative acts are available in this website on a timely manner and free of charge, files are not in machine-readable format. Format used in the website are .doc and archived (zip, rar).

We think it is public data. Although it is proceed that published information is public information, there is no clear statements about intellectual property rights attached to the government information. There is also no clear statement for the terms and conditions of reuse, e.g. for license.

In addition, there are available proprietary information systems like "Adliya" and "Pravo Consultant" in machine readable format in the market. It is expected that Adliya will be available online and free of charge in the future. However, it is the privilege of civil servants only.
