Taking pictures from textbooks
Hi there

I need advice!

I īve "rebuild" an activity from a textbook and I īd like to upload it. Is it allowed? I wouldn īt like to be accused of stoling.
I īll tell you: In the book you had to match sentences with pictures with a number (I īm wearing..) What I did: I scanned the pictures, inserted blank bubbles, took the text aside, put blanks in it and made the description longer. So it was transformed into a complete, match and copy in the bubbles activity.

would you consider it a copy?

Thank you!

If you used the same matching sentences and just moved them around, I would say it was a copy.  If you make-up your own matching sentences I think you would be okay.

I don īt think it would be considered a copy as far as you redesign the activity and add some ideas of your own. Don īt forget to quote the source of the pics or exercises!!!!
