The Copyright Modernization Act is now in Force

Bill C-11 (The Copyright Modernization Act) Update

Many sections of Bill C-11 (The Copyright Modernization Act) including fair dealing exceptions for education and other educational and library specific provisions are now in force as of Nov. 7th, 2012. Ryerson University is currently working on a new fair dealing policy, and our copyright pages wil be soon updated to reflect all the changes.

Highlights:

  • Fair dealing for the purpose of education, and parody and satire are now exceptions
  • Public performance rights are no longer needed to show a movie or video in a classroom setting
  • Material from the internet that does not have clearly posted warnings against  reuse can be reused in course materials
