Copyright and Related Rights Act, 2000
Reprographic copying by educational establishments of certain works.
57.—(1) Reprographic copies of passages from literary, dramatic or musical works or typographical arrangements of published editions or original databases which have been lawfully made available to the public may, to the extent permitted under this section, be made by or on behalf of an educational establishment for the educational purposes of that establishment without infringing any copyright in the work, subject to those copies being accompanied by a sufficient acknowledgement.
(2) Not more than 5 per cent of any work may be copied by or on behalf of an educational establishment under this section in any calendar year.
(3) This section shall not apply where there is a licensing scheme certified under section 173 and the person making the copies knew or ought to have been aware of the existence of the licensing scheme.
(4) The terms of a licence granted to an educational establishment authorising the reprographic copying for the educational purposes of that establishment of passages from literary, dramatic or musical works or the typographical arrangements of published editions or original databases, which have been lawfully made available to the public, shall be void in so far as they purport to restrict the proportion of a work which may be copied (whether on payment or free of charge) to less than that which would be permitted under this section.
(5) Where a copy which would otherwise be an infringing copy is made under this section but is subsequently sold, rented or lent, or offered or exposed for sale, rental or loan, or otherwise made available to the public, it shall be treated as an infringing copy for those purposes and for all subsequent purposes.
