Workshop to aid in copyright understanding

 Fair Dealing and Copyright  in Higher Education
Each year during the last week of February, Canada celebrates Fair Dealing Week to highlight the important role it plays in our educational ecosystem. Fair Dealing ensures that there is a balanced approach between creators’ rights and the rights of users and allows the use of reasonable amounts of copyrighted materials be used without permission for the purpose of research, private study, education, parody, satire, criticism, review, and news reporting.


Changes to the term of copyright protection in Canada

Copyright law in Canada provides all authors and creators with exclusive rights to reproduce, perform, and publish their work. (Government of Canada, 2022). However, copyright doesn't last forever and eventually does expire. When the term of copyright expires, the work enters the public domain and is then available for anyone to use and copy without permission or payment.
