University of Ottawa Professors’ Union Urges Rejection of Access Copyright Model Licence

The Association of Professors of the University of Ottawa is urging the University of Ottawa to reject the Access Copyright model licence. The APUO states:

APUO urges the University of Ottawa not to take the easier, but more costly step of paying an unaccountable and non-transparent licensing agency. In the spirit of a school that is poised to lead other Canadian universities by having become internationally recognized as a top research institution, it behoves us to listen to students and researchers who have voiced strong statements against accepting the model licence. APUO stands in solidarity with scholars and intellectuals who have recognized that this is a key opportunity to play a leadership role by rejecting the model licence and working toward better-managed solutions that are fair to our students and faculty, at the same time recognizing our obligations to rewarding the rights holders.
