  3. 3. Legislation allows… a whole lot! Canadian Copyright Act • Addition of education to Fair Dealing exception allows:    Copying short excerpts for private study, research, review, education Distribution of copies as hardcopies in class, posts to password-protected course website, and/or posts to Blackboard University’s Fair Dealing Guidelines for instructors

More on Fair Dealing • This means that for your student’s you may: • Distribute lecture materials (e.g. slides), including images • Copy and distribute Internet material • Play audio or video recordings in class • Distribute materials for which you hold the copyright • Provide copies of articles, book chapters, as long as not exceeding Fair Dealing
  5. 5. • Autumn 2011: U of S opted out of agreement with Access Copyright  Materials previously cleared through Access Copyright can no longer be used under that license • July 2012: Supreme Court of Canada made five rulings relating to copyright, which have broadened our understanding of fair dealing • November 2012: Changes to “modernize” the Canadian Copyright Act came into force

Using Own Material • U of S faculty own the copyright to their lectures as per the USFA collective agreement • You may use any works you are the copyright holder of • Note published works may belong to publisher. Copyright can be transferred • You may not own the copyright to all of the content within your lecture. Ensure any copyrighted material you use is allowed under the Fair Dealing/Education exception
  8. 8. Open Educational Resources "Open Educational Resources (OERs) are any type of educational materials that are in the public domain or introduced with an open license. The nature of these open materials means that anyone can legally and freely copy, use, adapt and re-share them. OERs range from textbooks to curricula, syllabi, lecture notes, assignments, tests, projects, audio, video and animation." (UNESCO).
  9. 9.

  10. 10. Public Domain Other options for providing material • Copyright does not last forever • Life of author (last living author), the remainder of that calendar year in which that author died, plus 50 years • “Life + 50” • For unknown authors and corporate works, life = publication date • These works can be copied, modified, and distributed without permission/attribution • Resources: • Project Gutenberg
  11. 11.
