Fair Dealing Week

February 23rd — 27th, 2015

Join us here from February 23rd to February 27th, as we engage in an online, Canada-wide discussion on fair dealing and Canadian copyright law. We’ll be featuring a number of informative videos from Canadian academic libraries, guest posts from experts, and a map to track the conversation happening throughout the week.


What is Fair Dealing Week?

Fair Dealing Week stems from Fair Use Week, a week-long event organized by the Association for Research Libraries to celebrate the exceptions to copyright law that allow for the use of copyrighted material to be used in certain circumstances without having to obtain permission from the rights holder. The aim of this week’s dialogue is to help you better understand fair dealing, fair use, and copyright law and to spark some conversations to get you thinking about how and why you can use copyrighted work.

How can you participate?

Join the discussion by adding your thoughts to posts, on Twitter, or recording a video response and sending it to copyright@library.utoronto.ca to be featured on the blog!

Don’t forget to tag @UofTSCCO in your tweets so we can hear what you have to say!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
