Does the law allow any use of a work without permission of the owner of the copyright, and, if so, which are they?
Subject to certain conditions, a fair deal for research, study, criticism, review and news reporting, as well as use of works in library and schools and in the legislatures, is permitted without specific permission of the copyright owners. In order to protect the interests of users, some exemptions have been prescribed in respect of specific uses of works enjoying copyright. Some of the exemptions are the uses of the work
for the purpose of research or private study,
performance by an amateur club or society if the performance is given to a non-paying audience, and
the making of sound recordings of literary, dramatic or musical works under certain conditions.
