Copyright dunce

Okay, I know that the copyright laws aren't that exciting. It's not glamorous like the tax code or sexy like traffic laws. But they are important.
The Fair use clause is there for a reason, people! It's not a suggestion. It's an actual law, and if you break it they will come after you and make you pay.
They give out rewards to people reporting copyright violations. Hey I can always use the cash.
So stop sending more than 6 requests of the same damn thing and go buy it. That's the rule. Really.
If you don't believe me, and my 3.85 grade point average from Library school, check out the Copyright office.
Those people can be mean. And you could get the pants sued off you by the author of the books you want. Now that's fun.
