Dear Friends,

I am posting is again, kindly help me knowing if there is any Indian law (Latest/old) for digitization  of a special Library in any PSU where the library is used only by their employees  working in  particular institute and by the other employees coming  for attending some training programmes in that particular institute.

or any law related to digitization of a special library .

Please guide and provide link  if the same is quoted anywhere so that I can get approval for digitization of my library..

Regards,

Shiromani Bajaj

GM Madam,

As per my information there is no separate law in India for digitization of material, but you have to follow the Indian copy right act.

I understand all the copyright are made taking into consideration of the public libraries because in the latest amendment I saw it was specifically mentioned about the digitization of Public library. copyright act  applicable to public libraries.

Thanks Mr. Kishor. I read all the points. I understand our library  is not covered for digitization as we have 14000 books on different subjects. it is very difficult to ask permission for each author for having copyright to get the same digitized.

Any other way if you know, how can I get my library books digitized without any legal complication, please tell.

Thanks for all information you provided.

Regards,

Shiromani

Madam,

You can not digitize any book cover to cover without taking prior permission of copyright holder, but you can digitize some of the pages as per your requirement, which is consider as a "fair use"

Thanks,

Kishor Sakariya

Dear Ms. Bajaj,

I have gone through your post.

May I suggest you to please consult the article by Dr.. K. Rama Patnaik in Economic & Political Weekly  (EPW) Vol. 49 #51 (20-12-2014) pp. 54-61.

You specially see the Notes & Reference parts where you will get important insight to Copyright issues (#2 in Notes) and some excellent articles by E.F. Duranceau and Zhang & Eschenfelder. In case you do not have access to  EPW, I can send you the pdf of the article.

Sincerely,

Siddhartha S. Ray, Calcutta

Sure, Sir. I will check this  and hope I will get information which I need. Thanks a lot Sir.

Regards,

Shiromani

Sir,

I feel bad in troubling you, but I need it. I could not arrange the above mentioned article. it is not available on internet also. Can you please help me in getting this particular article or suggest from where I can have this. I will be grateful to you, Sir.

With sincere regards,

Shiromani

Dear Ms. Bajaj
