Copyright in schools has changed
Make sure you're in the know...
Did you know that teachers can use “short excerpts” of copyright-protected
works in their lessons?
Did you know that, as a teacher, if you fail to follow the Fair Dealing Guidelines,
you are at risk of copyright infringement – and you, your school, and your school
board can be held responsible for damages?
To learn how changes to Canada's copyright law impact lesson planning and the use of copyright-protected works, teachers and school staff are encouraged to:
- Watch the video presentation below, entitled Dealing Fairly
with Copyright-Protected Works of Others
- Print a copy of the Fair Dealing Guidelines for personal reference
You need to know and use the Fair Dealing Guidelines as well as the established school process for seeking copyright advice and obtaining necessary copyright permission.
