1.) for example, say i read a book and store the notes into a powerpoint. Some text i have taken straight from the book and some i have put in my own words. I'f I wanted to distrubute this powerpoint to others, what options would i need to do in order to make sure i don't get in trouble with copyright?

I think what you are doing sounds like fair use -- if you are just sharing this with a few people, not charging for it, only quoting portions of the work, and citing it properly so it's clear it's writeen by someone else, you should be fine.

and click the "Fair Use" link on the left.
There's also a tool on this site- if you go to librarycopyright.net, there's a fair use tool on the bottom right.
