And most of the copyrighted material through high school is knowledge that hasn't fundamentally changed since before the copyrights were amended way back when. Heck, even a lot of college stuff is, too. Calculus came into being over 300 years ago, for Christ's sake! Relativity is over 100 years old!

Their business model needs to change. With their textbook prices on this 'old knowledge,' it is tempting to say **** ****.
