Question - Generic Grants of Permission

Part I: An Art History professor subscribes to a journal that includes generic language in each issue, granting readers permission to copy and distribute the articles contained in the journal. The professor would like to provide a copy of the article to each of his 250 students in his Introduction to Art History class. May he do so?

Probably. The professor should read the permission language carefully. As long as the professor's use falls within the grant of permission, he may copy the article. If there are limitations stated (for example, a limit on the number of copies that can be made), the professor must comply with those limitations
