CMEC: Copyright Matters!

Canadian copyright law continues to evolve in response to existing and emerging technologies, international agreements, and the need for reasonable balance between the rights of users and the rights of creators of copyright-protected works.

Copyright Matters! takes into account Canada’s new copyright law and recent Supreme Court decisions on fair dealing, and provides practical information for teachers on their rights and responsibilities with regard to the use of copyright-protected materials in educational institutions.

This booklet gives teachers user-friendly information on copyright law, covering items from the Canadian Copyright Act and its regulations, contractual and tariff arrangements with copyright collectives, and court decisions. Students, parents, and education administrators may also find it useful.
