Next Week is Copyright Fair Dealing Week in Libraryland
“The Canadian Association of Research Libraries has created a list of events from across the country to mark Fair Dealing Week, which takes place February 25 – March 1.
“The Canadian Copyright Act allows the use of material from a copyright protected work (literature, musical scores, audiovisual works, etc.) without permission when certain conditions are met. People can use fair dealing for research, private study, education, parody, satire, criticism, review, and news reporting. In order to ensure your copying is fair, you need to consider several factors such as the amount you are copying, whether you are distributing the copy to others, and whether your copying might have a detrimental effect on potential sales of the original work.””
