Copyright is an important issue, certainly relevant here, and worth emphasizing whenever it's raised.
Thank you Motet, copyright law(s) are a very important issue for us to be cognizant of. Educational use of copyrighted material has some leeway for us that teach.....which is enough for me.

It's not that the copyright is at issue; rather, it's one of law keeping up with technology. Since we've gone from the basement full of monks to the desktop copier, changes have not kept pace. Surely, better minds than mine could come up with a method of generating clean, unmarked scores to purchasers while still protecting the investment.
You mean, "If they can put a man on the moon..."? It's a hard problem, and I suspect there is no technological fix.
Of course a digital or Finale copy is better. But that needs to be under the control of the copyright holder; certainly not traded on a BBS on the web! I'm sure the distributors of those musicals Brian speaks of would love to be able to just email files when they rent something out rather than printing and shipping paper copies and dealing with the hassles of getting them shipped back, erasing markings, dealing with spilled coffee, etc. But to do so would be to make copying trivial, so they are wise not to.
