Hungaroteka provides an alternative legal option to non-licensed, illegal internet content which, if accessed, might be detrimental to yourself and others. The portal gives you an opportunity to reach these alternative options.

Hungaroteka offers several search possibilities of digital content websites. The search can be filtered by content type (for example, music). If you choose the option to search by content type, Hungaroteka will show you all the Legal Offer websites that contain the selected content type (for example, all Legal Offer Sites that cover the content type “music”).

What is the relationship between Hungaroteka and the EU portal agorateka?

Hungaroteka is a national portal containing lists of websites that offer digital content legally. It is linked to a gateway at European level, called agorateka, which encompasses national portals from a variety of participating European countries, most notably the Member States of the European Union.

Hungaroteka is an initiative by (explain background and stakeholders, public/private initiative?).

Together with other national portals, Hungaroteka is contained within agorateka, the EU portal to Legal Offer websites. Some of the national portals have been created by the public bodies of the participating country, others exist due to collaborations between public entities and private sector organisations, and again others are from the private sector and have been included, by the participating country, to be present in the portal.

The fact that a website providing access to the digital content covered is not listed in a national portal does not necessarily mean that this site is illegal. Such a website might be still unknown to the national portal, it might not wish to be listed or it might have applied to be listed with the validation procedure still ongoing.
