Research Libraries Statement on Fair Dealing and Copyright

Last week, the Canadian Association of Research Libraries issued a statement that declares that the Copyright Act’s fair dealing provision is being applied by Canadian university libraries in a responsible and informed manner:
"Over the past twelve years, the Supreme Court of Canada has written extensively on the appropriate use of the fair dealing exception under the Copyright Act, championing a 'large and liberal' interpretation. This balanced approach to copyright has been welcomed across the higher learning environment, and the Copyright Act’s fair dealing provision is being applied by Canadian university libraries in a responsible and informed manner."

"The 31 member libraries of the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) spent $293 million on information resources in 2014-15, demonstrating a clear commitment to accessing print and digital content legally and rewarding content owners accordingly."
