Copyright and Fair Dealing in Schools

There is a great on-line resource to help teachers determine whether fair dealing permits them to use short excerpts from copyright-protected materials for the students in their classrooms.

FairDealingDecisionTool.ca helps teachers decide, with a few clicks, whether the fair-dealing provision in the Copyright Act permits copying of short excerpts from print materials, artistic works, or audiovisual materials for students without needing to obtain copyright permission.

It takes 30 seconds on FairDealingDecisionTool.ca to have your copyright question answered. By clicking through this user-friendly resource, you will know whether the use of a short excerpt from a copyright-protected work is “fair.”
