Fair dealing is a user’s right in copyright law permitting the use of a copyrighted work without permission or payment of royalties. The fair dealing exception in the Copyright Act applies to specific purposes that are outlined in the act. These include research, private study, education, satire, parody, criticism, review or news reporting, provided that what you do with the work is ‘fair’. Fair dealing for "educational purposes" does not equate to permission to reproduce whatever content you wish. It’s paramount that all faculty and staff at the university abide by the provisions of the Copyright Act and the University of Windsor Fair Dealing Policy, a summary of which is below.For more information about fair dealing and its importance for educators and students, visit https://fair-dealing.ca/.
