Exceptions of copyright-5

...
What’s wrong ? you seem a little confused.
There were a lot of news paper articles in today’s news
And?
Well, i was wondering what happens to the copyright in these situations. Don’t you need the rights to transmit work to the public?
I’m surprised that you actually care about those kind of stuff.
Haha, things just stick to the back of my head sometimes.
So you think that TV-programs all over Japan are violating copyright?
If I think of it in that way, it makes me think that there might be some exceptions.

Meaning that articles written in newspapers and magazines can be used by other companies in their newspapers, magazines or news programs.
Also, in other press coverage, using copyrighted work when reporting criminal cases is allowed with the restriction that it is used in a range that is legitimate(article 47).
