Photocopying for Educational Purposes
If you wish to photocopy excerpts from a Currency book, you need our written permission to do so except where the Australian Copyright Act allows copying for Educational Purposes.
An educational institution can copy up to one chapter or 10% of a book, whichever is the greater, for its educational purposes provided that the educational institution (or the body that administers it) has given a remuneration notice to Copyright Agency Limited (CAL) under the Act.
For details of the CAL licence for educational institutions please contact CAL, Level 15, 233 Castlereagh Street, Sydney, NSW 2000, tel (02) 9394 7600, fax (02) 9394 7601, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In other cases, except as permitted under the Act, for example a fair dealing for the purposes of study, research, criticism or review, no part of any Currency book may be reproduced, stored in a retrieval system, or transmitted in any form or by any means without our prior written permission. All inquiries should be made to the publisher.
