Copyright questions – Ingram

My copyright question for today has to do with whether I can take a freely available eBook, eg, PDF, and annotate that and embed links for my students.  I am already doing this with two books, listed below:   Ito, Mizuko (2010).

If we post our own e-texts for our students should we provide explicit usage instructions (such as freely available without alteration or feel free to download and use with reference to the origination?
