How much work may I copy without Permission?


While the Copyright Act provides that a “short part of a published work” may be copied without copyright permission under specified exceptions, the term “short part” has not been defined in the Act, and there are no local High Court decisions that provide guidance on this subject.   International practice suggests that it is not merely a question of quantity but also of whether the section is considered integral to the work.  You are therefore strongly urged to obtain permission of the copyright holder.
