Their is a difference in letting people read the one copy of an article in
and Doctor's office and making copies for distribution. A person is not allow
to copy the article and share it in that way which is considered "publishing"
it. Posting it to a website is considered "publishing" it, especially since
anyone can copy it from there and there is no way to control what those
people might do with it.

Gee, if it's not a lot of doctor's waiting offices need to put away their
magazines. If you have bought and paid for journal article, or downloaded
after it became free to you, what's the difference between sharing that file
and letting someone else read your printed copt of the journal? While
the intellectual property rights of authors and publishers, I feel obliged
to point out that these situations are analogous.
