I own this book/journal, so why can’t I photocopy as much as I want?

Purchasing and owning a copy does not give you the right to make further copies from it. If it is still protected by copyright, someone else owns the “copyright” which is the right to make, or to allow others to make, copies. You can only make copies which are allowed by the law as “fair dealing for research or private study.”
