Lending of copyrighted books and publications
« on: August 13, 2014, 11:55:46 PM »
Hi,
Is an Individual or a group of individuals allowed to lend copyrighted books and/or publications, bought by him through legitimate channels and 'owned' by him, to another for a fixed charge? Does a firm that helps individuals to do so attract any legal liability? What are the implications under Indian and International law? Would such lending be interpreted to fall under 'fair use' since the individual may be lending only in the close vicinity of his home and had bought them ostensibly for his own personal use?

 I could find on research that this is a fairly 'open' topic and there is no accepted convention that lenders could lean on.

Thanks
-vallab

what you are suggesting like what a library does they allow you to read their books on a monthly, yearly subscription, is that what you are suggestion than that is fine its permitted.

but lifting the content of the book and re publishing it as your own is not permissible thats called infringement of Copyright
