CMEC Releases New Version of Copyright Matters!

Wednesday December 12, 2012
The third edition of Copyright Matters!, a copyright guideline document for the Canadian education community backed by government ministers of education, school boards, and the Canadian Teachers' Federation, has been released. This edition accounts for recent court and legislative changes, offering guidance that is far more consistent with the law than the earlier editions. Indeed, the fair dealing guidelines provide further confirmation of the widespread agreement throughout the Canadian education sector on the implications of the Supreme Court of Canada copyright decisions and make it increasingly difficult to justify payments under the Access Copyright licence.
