If it's photocopies of books, and that the case, of course it's a matter of copyright ... but also of respect of those who have written/commented/translated those books ... from what they can continue to spread the dharma if some just copy there work ?
In the case presented (and I did'nt want to go further) copyright is Tulku Thondup Rinpoche ...
Is it clear enough ?
nb : And it seems it's against the rules of Dharma Wheel
By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs.
By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.
