Iran: Books & Copyright

Kamangir says Tehran International Book Fair is one the most important events in a Tehrani student's life in the spring. Blogger adds even though, students get free coupons to pay almost half, buying an original book would be your last option. A thick technical book in Tehran is sold for less than 10,000 Tomans, means less than 15 CAN$. I am terribly sorry, but the absence of copyright in Iran is just fantastic for students.
