The Perfect Storm: Canadian Copyright Law 2012 | Contact North

The Perfect Storm: Canadian Copyright Law 2012 | Contact North | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

Radical changes to copyright law came into being in Canada in June 2012, which will have a significant, positive impacBill C-11 contained many provisions that will benefit the education community. A guide document from Contact North, the distance education network for Ontario, contains the following exaplantion:

 

The most notable positive educational reforms include:
1) The addition of education, parody, and satire to fair dealing. Fair dealing allows
users to make use of excerpts or other portions of copyright works without the
need for permission or payment.
2) The creation of a non-commercial user generated content (UGC) provision that
creates a legal safe harbour for creators of non-commercial UGC (provided they
meet four conditions in the law) and for sites that host such content. Educators
can use the provision to create non-commercial materials.
3) The bill distinguishes between commercial and non-commercial infringement for the
purposes of statutory damages. The change would apply to educational institutions
engaged in non-commercial activity and significantly reduce their potential liability
for infringement.
4) The implementation of a distance learning provision, though use of the exception
features significant restrictions that require the destruction of lessons at
the conclusion of the course.
5) The inclusion of an exception for publicly-available materials on the Internet. This
covers the content found on millions of websites that can now be communicated and
reproduced by educational institutions without the need for permission or compensation.t on education.

6) The adoption of a technology-neutral approach for the reproduction of materials
for display purposes. The current law is limited to manual reproduction or on an
overhead projector. The provision may be applicable in the online learning context.
7) The inclusion of a restrictive digital inter-library loans provision that will open
the door to digital transmission of materials on an inter-library basis, increasing
access to materials that have been acquired by university libraries.
8) A new exception for public performances in schools, which will reduce licensing
costs for educational institutions.
