Intellect Property Rights
- To protect the intellectual property of our compatriots, our national law has special provisions allowing creative talents to hold trademarks, patents, and copyrights, which protect their “intellectual property rights.”
- According to the text of Taiwan’s copyright law, copyright refers to the personal rights and economic rights of the author that are generated from his or her completed writings; it is a type of intellectual property right.
- The contents of a lecture constitute a literary writing, so the students need the speaker’s consent before recording it.
- Without the copyright holder’s consent or authorization, any uploading, downloading or forwarding of one’s writing is an act of Internet piracy, an infringement on the copyright holders’ “reproduction right” and “public transmission right.”
- Besides reasonable usage, playing or singing other people’s music or recordings in public require obtaining the written consent or authorization of the copyright holder. The conditions of consent or authorization can be discussed with copyright intermediary organizations for musical works.
- Copyright adopts “automatic copyright protection,” that is, a creator owns the copyright once the creation is completed. That work is protected by copyright law; listing or registration with government agencies is not required.
- One can only copy another’s work “within reasonable limits”; going beyond the reasonable limits poses the possibility of creating a replacement markets. For example, if everyone used copied texts instead of buying new books, no publisher would be willing to spend money to publish new books!
- Be careful when someone tells you that you can download unlimited music, software or videos as long as you pay a monthly membership! This could be a trap. Membership fees do not guarantee legal copyright authorization; please select legally authorized sites to avoid negligent violations of the law.
- Plagiarizing other’s research report without the copyright owner’s authorization or consent is an act of copyright infringement! Our intelligence should be used to create, rather than just to plagiarize!
- Love letters are also literary works protected by copyright laws; disclosing other’s love letters without the consent of the author is a violation of the other’s publicityrights.
- If the article to be distributed is news coverage delivering facts, anyone can make use of it!
- Buying pirated software to install in one’s computer or asking a store or company to install pirated software in one’s computer is an act of copyright infringement.
- Photocopying 5% to 10% of a book is considered to fall within a harmless and reasonable range of usage; going beyond this range is considered unreasonable copying.

Procurement of properties and services
1. Teachers using the books, articles, e-books, slides, charts, photos, video clips, animations, or software of others as class materials involves “reproducing” materials as stipulated in the Copyright Act. In accordance with Article 46 of the Copyright Act, teachers may reproduce the works of others that have already been publicly released within the “scope necessary.” How do you define the “scope necessary”? Generally, it should be relevant to a teacher’s class contents. In addition, based on the type and purpose of the works and the quality and quantity of the reproduction, the economic rights of the copyright holder must not be infringed, otherwise it shall not be considered “within the scope necessary.”
2. The videos teachers play in the classroom with classroom devices or audio-visual equipment of NTU must be either the “publicly released version” or the “educational version” specifically for school use or the teacher must receive authorization from the copyright holder to avoid infringing its copyrights.
3. The contents of the teaching resources DVD or the teaching resources website provided by publishers are usually for teachers to use as class materials only. Teachers who upload these digital files to the campus network platforms or cloud hard drives for students to browse, download, or record in open courses are considered as publicly transmitting these files. Teachers must be aware of their actions. Since the Internet has no boundaries, a small action may have a large impact on the rights of copyright holders. However, if the copyright holder has already given authorization for public transmission, you do not need to receive authorization from the copyright holder again, for example, teachers using NTU’s network to play “publicly released version” or “educational version” videos.
4. Since the Taiwanese society has not reached a consensus regarding the definition of the “scope necessary” stipulated in Article 46 of the Copyright Act, the boundaries set in the United States and Hong Kong are international standards we can take as reference. Please visit the Intellectual Property Office website under Appendix 1 of the “Teacher’s Class Materials & Copyrights” (https://topic.tipo.gov.tw/copyright-tw/cp-415-855924-5dd9b-301.html) for the summary of the standards for photocopying textbooks in the United States and Hong Kong. For information regarding the production and usage of digital teaching materials, please refer to the Fair Use Guidelines for Educational Multimedia in Appendix 2.
