Hi everyone--great to see such a lively discussion on an important topic such as copyright. My name is Irwin DeVries and I operate the provincial certification program for Certified Management Accountants in BC, Canada using online, classroom and hybrid approaches. One area that has grown for us is the use of online resources provided (and owned) by textbook publishers. It takes a lot of time and money to develop some of these materials so I don't object to the authors and publishers making a reasonable income off them--we all benefit from this arrangement. For example, we churn through hundreds if not thousands of practice exam questions every year. Better to "rent" than own them since we need to keep changing them anyways.
