Sometimes a textbook comes with an accompanying CD-ROM or DVD with audio.
The copyright in the book (literary work) and in the corresponding CD-ROM (audio/audio-visual material) exist separately, for example:-
You may copy a “reasonable portion” of the book.
As for the CD-ROM, the Copyright Act (Chapter 63) contains no deeming provision as to what constitutes a “reasonable portion”. We recommend that you do not make a copy but play the audio from the CD-ROM directly.
