Copyright Matters! – Some Key Questions & Answers for Teachers, 3rd edition (2012)

This document is housed on the CMEC server.

This booklet is designed to give teachers straightforward information on copyright law, covering items from the Canadian Copyright Act and its regulations.

It is the third edition of the booklet, and takes into account changes that have occurred since the second edition was published in 2005, reflecting existing and emerging technologies, international agreements, and the need for reasonable balance between users and creators of copyright-protected works.

The Copyright Act provides that it is not an infringement of copyright to deal with a work for the purposes of research, private study, criticism, review, news reporting, education, satire, and parody, provided the dealing is “fair.” The guidelines in this booklet describe the activities that are permitted under fair dealing in non-profit kindergarten to Grade12 schools.

The booklet uses a question-and-answer format to cover such topics as copying material for instruction and testing; the rights of students with perceptual disabilities to have access to special formats; school productions of music and plays; the rights of school libraries; the use of recorded music at school dances and other events; the online streaming of lessons; and the copying of computer software for educational use.
