The article presents questions and answers related to copyright. One person asks whether it is legal to download the front of the books or jackets to use on the screensaver. It is informed that a book covers generally consist of artwork which is copyright protected. Under the classroom instructional exemption for photocopying, the cover could be copied and copies made available to students or a single copy posted on a bulletin board in the classroom. Another question is about the legality in making audio or videotape of a person reading an entire book.
