Taking into consideration that your school since the foundation of the Books and Newspapers Data Organization, has always conducted collecting, arranging and supplying work of domestic Chinese-language periodical data, directly for the purpose of research and education service, and moreover has already officially changed name to Books and Newspapers Data Centre, we approve the requests in the incoming correspondence. Henceforth, the abovementioned Centre enjoys “National Special Permission” status for the duplication of works already published in periodical publications, may do so without approval of the author, and without paying remuneration to him, but should clearly indicate full name of the author, name of the work and source, and should also respect other rights the author enjoys as stipulated in Article 5 of the “Trial Regulations for the Copyright Protections of Books and Periodicals”.

According to the suggestion discussed between our Administration and your School, the abovementioned Centre enjoys “National Special Permission”, but must still execute the following three conditions to the letter.

1: Apart from organizing material for subscribers, free information and counsel services must be organised free of charge for all social science workers, and at any time, the material duplications stored in the abovementioned Centre must be offered;

2: For duplication of data, only the net cost may be received, service fees should be reasonable, the abovementioned Centre cannot change into a profit-making organ;

3: Concerning “Duplicated Periodical Materials”, a specimen should be sent as a gift to the author of the duplicated work, and thereby informed by letter. You may notify the content of this letter to relevant work units.

一九八五年八月七日人大校字23号来函收悉。

考虑到你校原书报资料社成立以来,一直从事搜集、整理和x提供国内中文报刊资料的工作,直接为研究和教学服务,且已正式更名为书报资料中心,我们同意来函要求。今后该中心复印报刊上已经发表的作品,享受“国家特许”待遇——可不经版权所有者同意,不向其支付报酬,但应说明作者姓名、作品名称和出处,并尊重作者依《图书、期刊版权保护试行条例》第五条规定享有的其他权利。

二、复印资料只能收成本费,服务费用亦应合理,该中心不能办成赢利机构;
