Copyright Permission in Book Printing Sector
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 3/27/2011  Keywords: Copyright Permission in Book Printing,book printing services field

In book printing services field, copyright permission usually happens to the trade between different owners. An author who is seeking to quote from a work by another author should seek permission from the publisher of the work, which usually holds the anthology and quotation rights on behalf of the author. It is not necessary to ask for permission under the 1988 Copyright, Designs and Patents Act. The Society of Authors and The Publishers Association have stated that they would usually regard as fair dealing the use of:

A single extract of up to 400 words, a series of extracts to a total of 800 words from a prose work, or a series of extracts to a total of 40 lines from a poem, provided that this did not exceed a quarter of the poem.

The words must be quoted in the context of format. In order to use an illustration contained in another book, permission should be sought from the publisher or original source of the illustration. Obtaining permission to use material from websites is fraught with difficulty, since there may not be a satisfactory paper trail to prove who owns the original copyright.

Copyright is typically thought of as a limited, legally sanctioned monopoly. Because of this, copyright licensing may sometimes interfere too much in free and competitive markets. These concerns are governed by legal doctrines such as competition law in the European Union, anti-trust law in the United States, and anti-monopoly law in Russia and Japan. Competition issues may arise when the licensing party unfairly leverages market power, engages in price discrimination through its licensing terms, or otherwise uses a licensing agreement in a discriminatory or unfair manner. Attempts to extend the copyright term granted by law - for example, by collecting royalties for use of the work after its copyright term has expired and it has passed into the public domain - raise such competition concerns. In April 1995, the US published "Antitrust Guidelines for the licensing of Intellectual Property" which apply to patents, copyright, and trade secrets. In January 1996, the European Union published Commission Regulation No.240/96 which applies to patents, copyright, and other intellectual property rights, especially regarding licenses. The guidelines apply mutatis mutandis to the extent possible.

Copyright is literally, the right to copy, though in legal terms "the right to control copying" is more accurate. Copyright are exclusive statutory rights to exercise control over copying and other exploitation of the works for a specific period of time. The copyright owner is given two sets of rights: an exclusive, positive right to copy and exploit the copyrighted work, or license others to do so, and a negative right to prevent anyone else from doing so without consent, with the possibility of legal remedies if they do.

Copyright initially only granted the exclusive right to copy a book, allowing anybody to use the book to, for example, make a translation or adaptation. or publicly perform the work. At the time print on paper was the only format in which most text based copyrighted works were distributed. Therefore, while the language of book contracts was typically very broad, the only exclusive rights that had any significant economic value were rights to distribute the work in print. The exclusive rights granted by copyright law to copyright owners have been gradually expanded over time and now uses of the work such as dramatization, translations, and derivative works such as adaptations and transformations, fall within the scope of copyright. With a few exceptions, the exclusive rights granted by copyright are strictly territorial in scope, as they are granted by copyright laws in different countries. Bilateral and multilateral treaties establish minimum exclusive rights in member states, meaning that there is some uniformity across Berne Convention member states.

The print on paper format means that content is affixed onto paper and the content can't be easily or conveniently manipulated by the user. Duplication of printed works is time-consuming and generally produces a copy that is of lower quality. Developments in technology have created new formats, in addition to paper, and new means of distribution. Particularly digital formats distributed over computer networks have separated the content from its means of delivery. Users of content are now able to exercise many of the exclusive rights granted to copyright owners, such as reproduction, distribution and adaptation.
