Well it all depends on what you set up with the tutor but as far as we were concerned,t he agreement was the tutor fee covered all necessary materials.
This is the legal standpoint, note the paragraph at the bottom where the photocopying allowance for non commercial use doesn't count.
Under UK legislation fair dealing with a copyright work for the purposes of private study or non-commercial research (with sufficient acknowledgement) does not infringe copyright.
The concept of 'fair dealing' is not defined. However, drawing on the separate limits specified by the CLA HE Licence, it is widely accepted that it is fair to copy for the above purposes the following:
"Books one chapter or 5 per cent of a book, whichever is greater
Journals an article or 5% from a single issue of a journal, whichever is greater
Conference proceedings a paper or 5% from one set of conference proceedings, whichever is greater
Short stories or poems in an anthology one short story or one poem of not more than 10 pages or 5% from an anthology of short stories or poems, whichever is the greater
Copying for commercial research, or for private study which is directly or indirectly commercial, is not permitted by this exception. Copying for commercial purposes is only allowed if the copyright owner's consent is obtained, or a copyright fee is paid, or it is made under licence."
