The Run Run Shaw Library of
the City University of Hong Kong reserves the right not to accept a copying
order if, in its judgement, fulfilment of the order would involve violation
of copyright law.
Upon the submission of a copying
request, the user has to declare the following:
- The photocopy or reproduction
of the requested item will be used for the purposes of private study
or non-commercial scholarly research only.
- The user has not previously
been supplied with a copy of the same article or with copies of more
than one article contained in the same issue of the periodical or a
copy of more than a reasonable proportion of the work by any librarian.
- To the best of the user's
knowledge no other person with whom s/he works or studies has made or
intends to make, at or about the same time as this request, a request
for substantially the same material for substantially the same purpose.
- The user understands that
if s/he makes a false declaration for the requested item and s/he was
supplied with a copy of it which would have been an infringing copy
if made by herself or himself:
- The user is liable for infringement of copyright as if s/he had made
the copy herself or himself; and
- The copy is treated as an infringing copy.
- The user undertakes to
accept the full responsibility of this photocopying and indemnifies
the University any liability incurred in relation to this photocopying
should a dispute concerning copyright infringement arise.
The full text of the Copyright
Ordinance is available through the Hong Kong e-Legislation (HKeL). Users may also refer to the Intellectual Property Protection in the Hong Kong SAR on the web page of the Intellectual Property
Department of the HKSAR Government. Staff in the Interlibrary Loan Services
will observe the copyright laws and return requests that appear
to violate them to the requesters.
