English: The management of language resources requires several legal aspects to be taken into consideration. In this paper we discuss a number of these aspects which lead towards the formation of a legal framework for a language resources management agency. The legal framework entails examination of; the agency’s stakeholders and the relationships that exist amongst them; the privacy and intellectual property rights that exist around the language resources offered by the agency; and the external (e.g. laws; acts; policies) and internal legal instruments (e.g. end user licence agreements) required for the agency’s operation.
