Subject: [ISLMA-Share] copyright question

Please see the following question from one of my colleagues and give me your thoughts.

If a book is no longer available to purchase because they aren't printing it any longer, is one free to make copies from it without violating any copyright laws?  Wasn't sure if the copyright laws extend beyond so many years after the copyright date.
