Dear Calynn
 
Information is not protected by copyright, only the "mode of expression". If you use the information, without copying the wording, and cite the source, that seems to me both legal and honorable.

Dear Calynn,
 
There is nothing to stop you from making the photocopy. I believe that photocopying can be a an infringment. I believe that is done every day and I am not aware of any case stopping the photocopy.
 
The use of the "information" is not covered  by the Copyright Statute. The copying is the problem. Copying excerpts from works Can be an infrigement. The more that is copied the closer one gets toward trouble.
 
The law can't be effectively dealt with in generalites. If it were that simple there would be no need for lawyers.
