Re: photocopying large format

Copying portions of a book for face to face instruction is
within the copyright laws. I stress originality in my classes
and my students understand plagiarism. Copyright infringement
becomes a legal issue when you are making money off the
material. Ethically we are stealing when we paint Daffy Ducks
image on the playroom walls. But that's pushing the issue.
