Be a Fair User of Copyrighted Materials

Under the Copyright Ordinance Section 38 - Research and private study and Section 41A - Fair dealing for purposes of giving or receiving instruction, use of copyright works to a reasonable extent for the purposes of private study or research will not constitute copyright infringement.

Please read the Guidelines on Photocopying of Printed Works by Not-for-Profit Educational Establishments to know more about making photocopies of copyrighted materials such as books.

Information extracted from "Copyright in Education in Hong Kong".


To decide whether your dealing with a copyright work is “fair”, you need to consider all the circumstances, in particular:

  • the purpose and nature of the dealing, including whether such dealing is for non profit-making purpose and whether it is of a commercial nature;
  • the nature of the work;
  • the amount and substantiality of the portion dealt with in relation to the work as a
    whole; and
  • the effect of the dealing on the potential market for or value of the work.

The following example would be considered 'fair':

  • a student copying a small portion of a copyright work and incorporating it in his project for illustration with acknowledgment of the source of the work.

But the following example would NOT be considered 'fair':

  • a student copying the whole or a large portion of a textbook because he believes the textbook is too expensive (this is not fair dealing because the amount is too great and the market for the book was adversely affected)

Please note that a copy made under this 'fair dealing' exemption may not be sold, offered for sale or hired to others.
