Copyright protects all original works: essays, novels, poems, photographs, music, and many more. It protects the author's right to decide how their work is used, and places restrictions on re-use of any original work, or part of. 

You are permitted to quote, or make photocopies or scans of, material for your own research/private study, providing that you makeone copy for yourself only, that does not exceed the following:

  • 5% or one chapter of a book, whichever is the greater.
  • 5% or one whole article from a journal, whichever is the greater.
  • 5% or one whole paper from a set of conference proceedings or published report of judicial proceedings, whichever is the greater.
  • 5% of an anthology of short stories or poems; or one short story or one poem of no more than 10 pages, whichever is the greater.

Broadcasting/using sections of recorded material (video, audio, or both) is permitted for educational purposes - including examination ie. using clips in a film submitted for your dissertation. However, always cite your quotations, as you would with written material.
