Legal – Illegal?
As a student, what am I allowed to copy and scan?
You are ALLOWED to photocopy/scan books and other written materials for your OWN use.
You are NOT ALLOWED to copy/scan books and other written materials and SHARE them with others.
Several cases in the Danish courts have demonstrated the continuous need for students to be aware of copyright, copyright law and the consequences of breaking copyright law.
Recently a 26 year old received a court verdict for illegally copying and sharing books and other written materials: 20 days suspended sentence, confiscation of the 27.740 DDK profits, and a claim for compensation of 34.870 DDK for restitution for the copyright owners.
