Copyright violation continued

The graduate course Theory and Practice of Teaching Writing (see previous post) just posted this comment:

Just to let you all know that the readings are here only until the books come in. The readings  for your second class will be taken off the page this week.

Apparently, there's no intent to violate copyright law. I imagine that scanning one copy and posting on the Internet can save paper costs, but posting publicly is not fair use. A better solution would be to hand out the URLs for the articles in class, so at least the public could not easily access them, and if possible, the best solution would be posting them in a secured, password-protected environment, which would be within guidelines of fair use for educational institutions.
