Internet Prevents Copying of Books


Baker & McKenzie’s Premium Global E-Law Alert (June 7th edition, subscription required) reports:

Publishing companies and universities in Brazil are offering alternative options for students that might significantly reduce the problem of illegally copying publications at the campuses. The proposals include downloading text excerpts from books contained into the book companies’ systems onto the users’ computers, or downloading text from the universities’ intranet and printing in one of their terminals, at a pre-established price, which shall cover the due copyright fees and the cost of the operation.
