The copyright law of the United State (Title 17, U.S. Code) governs the making of
photocopies or any other reproductions of copyrighted materials.
Section 108(f)(1) of the U.S. Copyright Act (Title 17, U.S. Code) says:
(f) Nothing in this section -
(1) shall be construed to impose liability for copyright infringement upon a library
or archives or its employees for the unsupervised use of reproducing equipment located
on its premises: Provided, that such equipment displays a notice that the making of a
copy may be subject to the copyright law;
Below is the notice language typically used:
"Notice: The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, U.S. Code) governs the
making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material; the person using
this equipment is liable for any infringement."
Marathon County Public Library displays this notice on library equipment that can be
used to make copies of any kind.
Collections and copyright:
The Library provides a variety of formats and materials but the determination of the
appropriate use of an item ultimately rests with the customer. It is the customer's
obligation to determine and satisfy copyright or other restrictions when using materials
from the Library collections. Customers are allowed to copy a limited amount of
materials, but any beyond that which is allowed by fair use requires written permission
of the copyright holder.
