Guidelines for classroom copying with respect to books and periodicals
The following statement of guidelines is not intended to limit the types of copying permitted under the standards of fair use under judicial decision. There may be instances in which copying that does not fall within the guidelines stated below may nonetheless be permitted under the criteria of fair use.
II. Multiple Copies for Classroom Use
(ii) Prose: (a) Either a complete article, story, or essay of less than 2,500 words, or (b) an excerpt from any prose work of not more than 1,000 words or 10% of the work, whichever is less, but in any event a minimum of 500 words.
(iii) Illustration: One chart, graph, diagram, drawing, cartoon, or picture per book or per periodical issue.
(iv) “Special” Works: Certain works in poetry, prose, or in “poetic prose” that often combine language with illustrations and that are intended sometimes for children and at other times for a more general audience fall short of 2,500 words in their entirety. Paragraph “ii” above notwithstanding, such “special works” may not be reproduced in their entirety; however, an excerpt comprising not more than two of the published pages of such special work and containing not more than 10% of the words found in the text thereof, may be reproduced.
(ii) The inspiration and decision to use the work and the moment of its use for maximum teaching effectiveness are so close in time that it would be unreasonable to expect a timely reply to a request for permission.
(ii) Not more than one short poem, article, story, essay, or two excerpts may be copied from the same author, nor more than three from the same collective work or periodical volume during one class term.
(iii) There shall not be more than nine instances of such multiple copying for one course during one class term.
[The limitations stated in “ii” and “iii” above shall not apply to current news periodicals and newspapers and current news sections of other periodicals.]
III. Prohibitions as to I and II Above
(A) Copying shall not be used to create, to replace or substitute anthologies, compilations, or collective works. Such replacement or substitution may occur when copies of various works or excerpts there from are accumulated or reproduced and used separately.
(B) There shall be no copying of or from works intended to be “consumable” in the course of study or of teaching. These include workbooks, exercises, standardized tests, test booklets, answer sheets, and like consumable material.
(C) Copying shall not:
