Reproducing a work that is under copyright in its entirety can potentially violate US Copyright Law. However, there is a provision known as Fair Use in Section 107 of the US Copyright Act that may make your request possible (especially if the intended use is educational and the work is out-of-print).
In order to reproduce this work in its entirety without violating copyright, you must be sure that you are adhering to all four aspects of US Copyright Law Section 107 (Fair Use). Please take a moment to examine these and justify in writing how each of the four factors applies to this request.
- Factor 1: The Purpose and Character of the Use
- Factor 2: The Nature of the Copyrighted Work
- Factor 3: The Amount or Substantiality of the Portion Used
- Factor 4: The Effect of the Use on the Potential Market for or Value of the Work
If you would prefer us to reproduce a segment of the cookbook, we can send along a scan of the title page, table of contents, and index so that you might make a more targeted request.
If you would like to move forward with this request (for one or two sections or a page range), please complete and submit the special collections reproduction request form, available on our website at http://speccoll.cofc.edu/reproductions-and-use/.
Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any additional questions or concerns!
