Warning Concerning Copyright Restrictions

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, U.S. Code) governs the making of reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified by law, libraries, and archives are authorized to furnish reproductions of copyrighted works. One specified condition is that the reproduction is not to be "utilized for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use", the user may be liable for infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of the copyright law. The granting of permission to publish by the University and Jepson Herbaria does not absolve users of materials from securing permission from copyright owners and payment of such additional fees as the owners may require if the University and Jepson Herbaria does not own the copyright or if the material is not in the public domain. Applicants assume all responsibility for questions of copyright, right of publicity, and invasion of privacy that may arise in copying and in the use made of the reproduction.
