    Permission for Students to Reprint Selections for Course Use

    Permission is not required from Princeton University Press for text excerpts or translations to be used in M.A. Theses, Ph.D. Dissertations, or as class projects. Please be sure to credit the material appropriately. Permission is only granted for internal publication of your work (i.e., library binding, UMI, class assignment), with no external distribution permitted of any kind. If you publish your dissertation, thesis, or translation in the future in any form and include PUP material you must request formal permission. Please note that this is applicable only for material for which Princeton University Press holds the copyright. For images and illustrations, please check the credit line. If the material is copyrighted by another institution or individual, you will need to contact the appropriate party for permission. It is the requestor’s responsibility to ascertain copyright.

    Princeton University Press Guidelines for Fair Use

    One of the more important limitations to copyright is the doctrine of "fair use." The doctrine of fair use has developed through a substantial number of court decisions over the years and has been codified in section 107 of the copyright law.

    Section 107 contains a list of the various purposes for which the reproduction of a particular work may be considered fair, such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. Section 107 also sets out four factors to be considered in determining whether or not a particular use is fair.

    1. The purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes
    2. The nature of the copyrighted work
    3. The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole
    4. The effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the copyrighted work

    The distinction between what is fair use and what is infringement in a particular case will not always be clear or easily defined. Acknowledging the source of the copyrighted material does not substitute for obtaining permission.

    In general, Princeton University Press considers text excerpts shorter than 250 words to fall under the provisions of “Fair Use” under copyright law. You do not need to seek the Press’s permission to reproduce PUP-copyrighted prose excerpts of this size in your work, unless the excerpt is from a poem, or is to be used as an epigraph in your publication. For poems, or for text permissions used as epigraphs, please contact the Copyright Clearance Center for permission.
