And there are signs above the photocopiers in the university where I work, warning us against copying more than one chapter from each book, on account of copyright regulations.

Different countries have different copyright and fair use regulations.

It is not in Italy. You can copy up to a small percentage of the book.
You can't scan a book either. A law states you must have the publisher's authorisation to scan one of its book, though another low states that a publisher cannot grant it because it doesn't own digital rights on the book.
I deduce that means you can't scan a book

Well, despite the fact that the copied material will be probably more expensive than the actual book ...

I've always wondered, if a person has an eidetic (photographic) memory, goes to the library and flips through all pages of a book (i.e. places them in his memory) and then goes home to peruse the content of that book, has he violated the author's copyright? Or what if he "reads" the book from memory (instead of directly from the printed book) to someone else, maybe to an audience who pays him a fee for doing so?

Enquiring minds want to know!

Or maybe he can become a valuable consultant for the CIA/NSA like Chuck Bartowski.

from what i can tell, they've been removed following a DMCA complaint from the link that started off the thread. though if there's another spot where they're hiding i'd love to know!

You're right - I accidently checked the epub variant.

It took Adobe quite a time to realize it ... I think this censorship will distribute the script even further ...

I wonder if Adobe will attempt to change their DRM to counter this like they did after the Dmitry Sklyarov/Elcomsoft deal back in 2001.

To change a DRM system needs resources and time. Even if they change it you can easily search for it.

I haven't read anything in the mass media about the hack so I / they think it is a local problem.
