Abstract: 

Purpose: Protection of material rights requires that any use of work is considered impossible if the copyright holder is not Satisfied. Sometimes, for reasons such as public interest will the use of work is permitted without the necessary consent of the author. This paper aims to discuss the important role of libraries in information dissemination with regards to legal systems and attempts to present a different perspective about the possibility of copying the works.
Methodology: This paper uses a descriptive, analytical and comparative approach to legal systems including USA, France and Iran.
Findings/Results: Analysis and interpretation of relevant legislation indicated that copying by libraries is one of the exceptions to the copyright law, but there are differences in the scope of permissible copying by libraries. Legislators in some countries such as U.S. have allowed all three types of copying: request by users, preservation and replacement and inter- library loan; While provisions in some countries (such as France) has allowed copying for request by users and preservation and replacement and some countries have accepted only copying for request by users. It seems that Iran is in the third place. Therefore, providing better services by the library requires that copying for preservation and placement and inter-library loan are clearly stated in the rules.
