Can I photocopy a book?

Not usually.  There are national and international laws that protect creators and authors so that only they have the right to reproduce their work. If anyone else makes a copy, it may be a case of copyright infringement or violation.

However there are instances where you can photocopy a book.  For example:

·         you may have asked and received permission from the author to reproduce the book

·         the book may be in the public domain

·         the book may have been published under a Creative Commons licence with terms that permit photocopying
