This is quite stupid.

All the resources that I want… but only if I’m a ‘lecturer’ whatever than means. I wonder what dastardly deeds I could do with figures from the book if I weren’t a lecturer. Thank goodness I don’t have a scanner with which to scan them.

In their favour, I imagine this is a form of greed or coercion (not necessarily bad things). They want to:
i. Get statistics about the adoption of the book for courses.
ii. Have contact details for people who are using this book for teaching purposes

and therefore they make things slightly more difficult if you don’t do this. (Alternatively, they might say they make things slightly easier for people who do these things).

Anyway, if I could remember the UK laws on fair use I would be distinctly tempted to produce and post these materials myself.
