FSAC “Dismayed” By Copyright Reform

The Film Studies Association of Canada, a national scholary association, has released a detailed statement on Canadian copyright reform, expressing their dismay at Bill C-61.  The FSAC notes that the bill "will seriously threaten educational and scholarly rights, limiting access to copyrighted material and eroding academic protections offered by the 'fair dealing' provision in current legislation. If  passed, Bill-C61 would severely restrict the fair use of copyrighted material in educational and scholarly contexts."
