The law does not define how much can be copied. You should seek to observe the extent limits or so called “safe copying" limits of:

  • One article from an issue of a journal
  • 10% or a chapter from a work
  • Under fair dealing you may only copy for yourself. You cannot make copies for other people.
  • You may make only one copy of the same work.
  • As a general rule you may not copy more than the so called “safe copying limits" from the same work at around the same time (i.e. you cannot copy one chapter from a work one day and a further chapter for the same work the next).
  • Your copying should be for non-commercial research or private study purposes.
  • You should acknowledge the source of your copy.
