How to work around ACTA firewall?

Hello everyone, Im fairly new to this site and honestly Ive never heard of Linux until today. Recently I have began taking college courses online and big problem that I have is I dont have a text book, and when my friend (in another country) tries to scan pages of the text book and send it to me it never works. Therefore after much research I figured out the problem was due to the rules of the ACTA agreement thus preventing us from "copying" the contents of the txt book. My question to anyone who can help is, would there be anyway Linux could be used to disable those settings or am I royally screwed? Any feedback would be much appreciated.

Thank you,

Vincent Edwards
