I had a conversation with an educator about a year ago. The educator was excited to tell me about a new online course he was creating. To create the course, he had purchased a variety of textbooks on the subject from a variety of publishers. He was scanning the pages into the platform and adding questions as well as picking up the existing activities.
In his opinion this is Fair Use. His justification, the content was to be used in an educational setting so he was free and clear. Plus, he was taking print and making it “digital” and adding his questions to the content.
What do you think? Fair Use or Copyright Violation
