I'm sorry I have to speak up here. This is so TOTALLY against copyright. Please don't do this--it's illegal, as it is when shopowners and anyone else does it. You're allowed to make one photocopy for personal use. Not to give it to friends for free.


<hang head in shame>Whilst in principle I agree with you, the book has been out of print for over 15 years and, under UK copyright law, you have to photocopy either 1/4 or 1/5 of the book before you break copywrite (which is how schools get by with photocopying/distributing whole chapters of text books). That (and the fact that I'm not selling it) is why I thought it would be OK.

I did a Google a while ago to try to find the designer. I'll hunt again - if I can't get his permission, I won't give Kathleen a copy.
