Copyright is your responsibility
A good site to check for copyright regulations is: http://www.copyright.org.au/
Usually for private use or study the rule is 10% of publication is permitted to be copied. You need to check for yourself. This applies to all media: printed, digital or other. If you wish to publish anything from another publication be it for public or private distribution, you DO need to request permission from the author or publisher who holds copyright on that work. Not doing so could be very costly. Check if the copyright on the publication has expired as many publications can be accessed after 75-100 years.
