Fair Dealing Week 2016: February 22 - 26

No comments :
Fair Dealing Week is a time to promote and discuss the opportunities provided by this important provision of the Copyright Act. Fair dealing allows for certain uses of copyrighted works without requiring permission or payment, helping define user rights that support both engagement with existing works and the creation of new content.

An initiative commissioned by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), Fair Use / Fair Dealing Week is recognized in both the US and Canada. 

View this this short video of Vice-Provost and Chief Librarian Gerald Beasley explaining the value of fair dealing.
