If you wish to copy, photocopy, or in any way reproduce any part of the material in Oxford books – whether it be text, illustrations, diagrams or graphics - you must apply for permission to do so. This is so that you comply with the provisions of the Copyright Act and ensure that the authors of Oxford books receive the revenue due to them for their intellectual property.
