Copying work beyond what is allowed under Canadian Copyright law or as permitted by the copyright owner regardless of referencing.
Amad is registered for Introduction to Accounting. The required textbook for the course costs $150 dollars. Amad is not sure he can afford to buy the textbook. Amad’s classmate, Andy, bought the book and tells Amad that he can photocopy his purchased textbook. Andy says that since he owns the book, he can do anything he wants with it. If Amad photocopies the complete textbook, he is breaking the author's copyright, which is considered an academic offence.
