Well, actually the copyright laws are more complicated than that, and
there are differences between print and software copyrights. I'm not an
expert, but I am studying for a masters in library science, and this is a
subject librarians have to be well versed in. For print sources, it's
okay to photocopy as long as you're not making a profit and not materally
taking profit from the author or publisher. In other words, copying a
few pages from a book for a friend is probably alright. For software,
read the packaging material carefully. A lot of it tells you that the
software is to be used by one person on one terminal, but it depends.
I'd love to be corrected on this if anyone has better information.
