Access Copyright and Brandon University

As of July 1, 2012 Brandon University entered into an agreement with Access Copyright based upon the Model Licence negotiated by the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) and Access Copyright.  A quick guide to what is allowed under this license can be found at this link.

Current Copyright Legislation

In 2012 the Canadian Government passed the Copyright Modernization Act.  It was significant in that it added Education to one of the allowable uses of copyrighted materials under Fair Dealing.  The act was set for review in five years and the government of the day is now holding hearings around the copyright law.  These hearings will last into 2019.
