Re the Kinko's decision, I read today (in our campus newspaper,
the Daily Pennsylvanian) that material that had previously been
considered "fair use", and that Kinko's was reproducing without
paying royalties on, is no longer considered so.  The result is
that it will take Kinko's much longer to put together a bulkpack
(because they will have to research all the material) and the
packs will be more expensive (because of royalties).  The article
also said "what was legal Thursday was suddenly not legal Friday",
so if you're using bulkpacks right now, be prepared for hassle.
I would also appreciate more details about the decision and its
ramifications from someone who knows more than I do.
