1. Mid 90s many Us had contract w/ bookstore chain that students could only buy texts there

A Spanish teacher got in trouble because she had bought in Spain copies of a book she used in a class. Bookstore saw that she had ordered no text for a class and freaked out. They complained to admin, which came down hard on every prof.

Some on faculty investigated and learned the school's bookstore was run by a national chain that had this policy everywhere. (The school's contract with the chain was recent. No one on faculty realized that books would now be sold by a monopoly.)
