A guide to copying and digitization at Brandon University

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 has reviewed it and indications are that Education will remain an allowable use.


Fair Dealing Decision Tool

The Fair Dealing Decision Tool helps teachers decide whether "fair dealing" permits classroom use of print materials, artistic works, or audiovisual materials without first getting copyright permission.  It is very useful.



Copyright Open Educational Resource for University Instructors and Staff

The Canadian Association of Research Libraries has released several modules related to copyright in higher education.   

Each module consists of a short video followed by a short quiz. 


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.
