Photocopying Chain Found in Violation of Copyright Law.
Watkins, Beverly T.
Chronicle of Higher Education, v37 n29 pA1,19 Apr 3 1991
A federal court ruled that Kinko's Graphics Corporation, a national chain of photocopying stores, infringed on publishers' copyrights by reproducing excerpts from books and selling them in anthologies for college students. The firm was judged to be engaged in the publishing business and thus not covered under the law's provision of fair use for educational purposes. (DB)
