Just to clarify this point: it may depend on the law of the particular jurisdiction. Under Australian copyright law, my understanding is that the amount of a periodical issue that may be copied is restricted, and though there's a "statutory licence" for educational purposes, it's limited too. The fair use doctrine doesn't embrace the copying of an entire issue. The full Australian provisions may be read at http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/cth/consol_act/ca1968133/ -- and I'm no lawyer, I'm simply passing on observations.
