Copyright at Carleton

Carleton opted out of Access Copyright in 2011. The university is responsible for complying with copyright laws, rules and regulations. University and Library policies and procedures ensure that copyright regulations are respected, required permissions are obtained and necessary costs are covered.

Carleton updated its Fair Dealing Policy in 2012 to reflect the 2012 revision to Canada's Copyright Act.
