Fair Dealing Week

Join Jeannie Bail and Joshua Dickison in a discussion about the current state of Fair Dealing in the context of the Canadian Copyright Act Review. Sharing small portions of work for educational purposes has been added to the acceptable uses within the Canadian Copyright legislation, this right is now being debated by the publishing community and there is a potential that education could be removed from the language.

Please join us on Wednesday, February 28th, in the Milham Room (#100) at the Harriet Irving Library, 12:00 – 1:00pm with your questions and concerns for a brown bag discussion over lunch.
