Copyright Board Rejects Bid For Transactional Licences

The Copyright Board of Canada has rejected a request by the AUCC to require Access Copyright to issue transactional or pay-per-use licences. The refusal to issue such licences, which reflect an effort by universities to license the use of works, is likely to lead to universities seeking new alternatives for course materials or dealing directly with rights holders and by-passing the collective.
