Fair Dealing — A provision in the Copyright Act that is very important for teachers to understand. Performing typical duties, such as preparing lessons for classroom use, could result in costly lawsuits against individual teachers, this school, and the school board.
The Copyright Consortium of the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada has developed a Web site that features a fair dealing decision tool that enables teachers to quickly determine whether a specific use of a copyright-protected work is permitted without needing permission from the copyright owner. If the dealing is fair, copyright permission is not required. This Web site also provides essential information on the Fair Dealing Guidelines and other important copyright information.
PLEASE BOOKMARK THE WEB SITE – AND START USING IT.
Why are we taking the time to talk about copyright today?
It is important for teachers to know what they can and cannot do under fair dealing. Teachers must know and respect the limits in the Fair Dealing Guidelines.
If you have questions about whether an intended use of a copyright-protected work falls within the Fair Dealing Guidelines, connect with your principal. Likewise, if permission to use copyright-protected materials is required, contact your principal to complete the necessary permission request – before the materials are copied or communicated.
