Ontario Government Placing Big Bet on Open Textbooks - Michael Geist

Ontario Government Placing Big Bet on Open Textbooks - Michael Geist | Copyright news and views from around the world | Scoop.it
The Creative Commons Global Summit was held in Toronto over the weekend, bringing hundreds of people together from around the world to discuss issues ranging from copyright reform to enhancing collaboration and sharing. As part of the opening of the event, David Lametti, the Parliamentary Secretary for the Innovation, Science and Economic Development, and Deb Matthews, the Ontario Minister for Advanced Education and Skills Development as well as the Minister for Digital Government, both provided words of welcome. Their presence demonstrated how far openness, access, and balanced copyright have come in recent years.  Lametti, a leading voice on copyright as McGill law professor, emphasized the important role of balance and flexibility in the copyright system, while Matthews provided a unequivocal endorsement of openness and access.

Matthews provided more than just encouraging words, however.  She used her opening remarks to promote the creation of a new Open Textbook Library for Ontario that will feature hundreds of openly licensed, professionally created textbooks providing students with access to free digital texts in dozens of university and college courses.

EU Parliament Approves Cross-Border Online Paid Content - Intellectual Property Watch

EU Parliament Approves Cross-Border Online Paid Content - Intellectual Property Watch | Copyright news and views from around the world | Scoop.it

But the regulation will not really end geoblocking, warned the minority opposed to the regulation, as Pirate Party Member Julia Reda.
