For the purposes of research or study you can copy:

  • one article from a journal or periodical
  • more than one article from the same issue if they of the same study topic
  • one chapter (or 10% of the pages) of a literary, dramatic or musical work (eg. book, play, sheet music)
  • 10% of the number of words in a literary or dramatic work in electronic form
  • a "fair" amount of other types of works and subject matter, such as audio-visual materials, for study purposes (eg. clips from films).
  • the whole of an artistic work if it accompanies text or music copied;  

Search the Australian Copyright Council Infosheets for "fair dealing".
