What is Fair Dealing?
You probably make use of fair dealing every day without even realizing it! Whether emailing a news article to a friend, using a clip from a song, using a copyrighted image on social media, or quoting passages from a book when writing an essay. Activities such as these are not considered to be copyright infringement – in fact, the ability for users to make copies for specific purposes is an integral part of the Canadian Copyright Act.
Every year libraries and educational institutions across North America celebrate the rules that allow sharing of portions of published works for research and education.
In celebration of Fair Dealing Week 2021 you're invited to enter our Virtual Escape Room.
