uncertified copy
Explanation:
Or unofficial copy.

I found the following in a Swiss document. It may be a term particular to Switzerland.

La Cour de cassation entend que la copie jointe au recours soit
celle que le greffier délivre, sous sa signature, aux parties qui le
requièrent. Elle interdit les copies libres et les photocopies, à moins
qu'elles n'aient été certifiées conformes par le greffier.

agree  Colin Morley: Yes. In terms of music or writing it would be 'non copyright' but that doesn't fit the bill here. I think uncertified copy sounds good in context
