Pt.I S.2 (10)

p29 (of 205) of the copyright directive

"Where an act which would otherwise infringe any of the rights conferred
by this Act is permitted under this Act it is irrelevant whether or not
there exists any term or condition in an agreement which purports to
prohibit or restrict that act."

That's it, isn't it?
