Case Study materials are protected by U.S. copyright laws, and one soft copy must be purchased for each time that the file will be downloaded, forwarded, or photocopied.
If you would like multiple copies of a case study or other teaching material, or if you would like to incorporate a case study or other product into a course packet, you must purchase the same number of soft copy permissions as the number of copies you need or course packets into which you plan to insert the case or exercise (if you're having 40 course packets printed, you would order 40 soft copies of the case(s) you plan to include). This option works well for case studies and other exercises for which each student receives identical material.
If you are ordering role simulations, remember that most role simulations include different sets of confidential instructions for different participants. So, if you order 40 copies of a 2-party role simulation, you would receive 20 permissions for one party's instructions and 20 permissions for the other party's. In this case, you might choose to either (a) create different course packets for different students; (b) include only the general instructions for the role simulation in the course packet, if the simulation comes with them, and distribute the confidential instructions separately; or (c) omit the role simulation from the course packet entirely.
