Hello, all,
I think I know the answer to this already, but most of my sources deal with 
copyright in schools and libraries, and this is a private project:  a friend's 
relative wants to read children's books downloadble on some sort of electronic 
device that could be used by children in a local hospital.  The readings may or may 
not be accompanied by the hard copy of the book.  I know recordings are 
commercially available, but a large part of the project is providing the relative 
with a task he sees as contributing to the welfare of the hospitalized children.  
Should I advise them to seek permission from each book's publisher or advise them 
not to undertake this project at all?
