Teachers and publishers battle over copyright changes

According to an article in last Saturday's Globe and Mail, a new copyright battlefront is opening in Canada between teachers and publishers.

"Teachers are worried they could face lawsuits for distributing material downloaded from the Internet to their students. But rights holders say legislating open access to the Internet would mean they won't get paid for their work".

In March, the federal government outlined its proposals for copyright reform expected later this year. The issue of the use of material from the Internet for educational purposes has the potential to turn into a huge contorversy.
