Fair Dealing: What’s the Deal? A Presentation and Discussion on Campus Copyright

If you’ve ever used a copyrighted work — whether in a lecture, a class reading, or in the course of study and research — then you’ve almost certainly been exercising your Fair Dealing rights under Canadian copyright law. As part of Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week 2017 (February 20-24), the UPEI Library is pleased to invite all interested members of the campus community to a lunch-and-learn on fair dealing — what it is and how to do it — and on copyright best practices generally. The session will begin with a short overview presentation on recent and pending Canadian copyright developments pertinent to higher education, including the 2017 Parliamentary review of Copyright Modernization Act. There will then be an opportunity for discussion, both on general copyright trends and on specific use cases, highlighting the practical application of fair dealing principles in academic teaching and research activity.
