@Alynn: I wasn't saying you should scan the whole book, just a couple of pictures.
And believe me, if I had $50 dollars to waste on a book, I would buy it,but as it is I barely have money for food being off at college and that still doesn't help the fact that even if I or others did have money for the book and wanted it, that there are so few copies of it in English that they might not be able to get it anyway. The photoshop thing is different. That's putting up a whole program. But just scanning a couple of pictures from a book doesn't do any harm. It's not like you'd be putting up the whole book so people would still want to buy it when they have the money. In fact, it would actually be promoting the book, like giving a little taste or teaser to the contents if you will that will make people want to buy the book. I never said I'm entitled to the book. I don't except you to scan the whole book,but me and others are saying it wouldn't hurt if you scanned just a few pictures from it. Of course, we are not forcing you to scan the book. I apologize if I came off as rude. I tend to have anger management issues when I think someone is insulting me that I need really need to work on.
As for copyright, I might respect copyright more if it wasn't so strict in this country. Do I think people should be allowed to put up or download whole programs,books, or movies? No. But I think it's kind of harsh for them to get in trouble for uploading a couple of pictures or a music video with clips from a movie they like up on youtube as long as they give credit to the original source by saying what book and what photographer the photos or pictures came from and what movie the clips come from and what the song is,etc. The argument of losing money really isn't valid unless it involves putting up the whole book,movie, etc. In reality, I know first hand it actually helps the companies to make more money. I know there are a couple of manga/comics that once I saw pictures of them online, I became interested and went out and bought them and wouldn't have even known about them if it wasn't for the pictures those people scanned. Same with the music videos. I went and bought the songs and/or the movies I became intersted in by hearing or seeing them in the video. It's not disrespect. It's free advertising,but companies don't actually look into it enough to see it that way because they're too caught up in making money to realize that what they think is making them lose money is actually free publicity that is making them more money. Of course, using clips, music,pictures, photos, etc. without citing the source it came from is a whole different matter though.
