The Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1998, Section 32, allows use of extracts of copyright material for the purpose of 'Illustration for instruction'. However, there are a number of considerations to take into account if you wish to rely in this exception:
- all types of copyright works can be copied for the sole purpose of illustration for instruction – to illustrate a teaching point
- use is subject to fair dealing - so copying is limited to what is required for the purpose and must not impact on the rights holder
- copying must be done by a person giving or receiving instruction
- copying must be for a non-commercial purpose only
- the work must be sufficiently acknowledged
