So long as that pdf remains in your custody, I don't see a problem with it.
Me either. Though the original post was asking if it was ethical to copy a library book
, if the means of copying affects the ethics of making the copy, and if it is then ethical to upload the copy to "the network" (the OP's way of saying "the internet"). To which my answers would be the same as pdurrant's.
