Not necessarily.  If you can establish a contract at every stage in the 
chain, you may be able to impose restrictions that go beyond copyright.

More interesting here is whether it is actually copyright or database 
rights that are at stake.  I think scanning only creates a new copyright 
on the typographical arrangement, and doesn't affect the database 
rights.  However, because there may be contractual restrictions, and 
because it might put OS into a bad position with their supplier, I would 
suggest that one obeys the restrictions that OS are imposing.
