Welcome to Copyright@Waterloo!
Recent changes to the Copyright Act (Canada) and decisions of the Supreme Court of Canada, in particular Alberta (Education) v. Canadian Copyright Licensing Agency (Access Copyright), 2012 Supreme Court of Canada 37, have expanded the scope of the fair dealing exception under the Act.
The university’s Fair Dealing Advisory (the "Advisory") outlines the guidelines for making copies under the fair dealing exception of the Act, including how much of a given work may be copied, how it may be distributed and for what purposes. Please review the Advisory carefully so that you understand what you may copy under fair dealing.
We are committed to providing copyright related support and advice to assist faculty, staff and students. If you have questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
