Warning Concerning Copyright Restriction

The copyright law of the United States [Title 17, United States Code] governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified by law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be “used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research.” If a user makes a request for, and later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of “fair use,” that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve a violation of copyright law. 

I certify that the information on this application is correct, and that any publication of the requested materials will meet the above conditions established by WRC. I understand that no Rice copyrighted reproductions may be published without written permission of WRC, and that no copies will be made of the materials provided. Further, I am aware of my responsibility in the case of possible copyright infringement.
