I have started a small community education company. I am using

This answer was rated:

I have started a small community education company. I am using textbooks that I have researched on line- I get most from Amazon. I use the books (I do not make copies). Do I need to get permission from the publisher if I use the books? The copy right statement in front of the books I use state books cannot be copied - if so only by teachers with approval from the publisher but not anything more.
Any advice is appreciated.
Thank you.

copyright guards against unauthorized copying/reproduction, so merely using the books is not a problem


Do I need to notify the publisher that I am using the book?
