For my doctorate (economics) I absolutely need access to a scientific database. The problem is that my university unfortunately does not offer this database in its library. The database access as well as single data from the database would be much too expensive for my university. There is also no kind of agreement possible with another university that offers this database.
For this reason, I am considering enrolling as a guest PhD-student in a university that offers this database to all its members. However, I am not sure if this would be in accordance with the licensing law. So I would get the necessary data from the database in University B and use this data for my research at my University A. Downloading the data from the database in University B is completely legal for guest PhD-students. But I don't know if I can use this data for research at my University A.
Can anyone tell me if this would be legally okay?
Maybe someone has already been in a similar situation and can help me.
For a better legal classification: I am doing my doctorate in Germany.
Many thanks in advance!
