I asked a question on Academia.SE,
"Does copying the book's figure for my dissertation fits the copyright?"
I changed it several times, but I think there is still something strange. How does it sound when I say "copying the book's figure for my dissertation"? Is that correct? Should I rephrase it to "copying the book's figure to my dissertation"? I feel the latter sounds like I'm copying and pasting the image directly into my dissertation, while the former seems that I'm copying the image for the purpose of my dissertation, not telling what I'm exactly doing with the image. Hence, the question, are both acceptable? Am I correct about the differences between them?
Finally, I've wrote "Does copying the book's figure [...]". Well, using the here seems that I'm talking about a specific figure of my book. As in StackExchange we want questions that helps everybody, if I used an indefinite article it would sound more generic for everybody?
