<< This is an interesting point.   Does this, copyright law, apply to books
that are at the library?  For instance, what about reference books and other
controlled literature that you are not able to check out?  Can you then make a
photocopy of the articles or information and be within the law?   People make
copies of procedures from books and manuals everyday.  Is there a fine line
here?  How is this different from a instrument procedure manual?  I think we
all need to have a law degree also:)

Good point, Kathy!

Or how about making copies of MSDS sheets?  Somebody at the Chemical supplier
or the manufacturer had to write up the sheet.  Do we violate a copyright when
we burn off a copy for the Safety Officer??
