Copyright News

The copyright situation at Carleton has changed in two important ways. First, Canada has a new version of the Copyright Act, with important implications for all educators. Second, Carleton has opted out of Access Copyright.

Now that it has opted out of Access Copyright, Carleton is responsible for its own compliance with copyright laws, rules and regulations. Policies and procedures have been put into place to ensure that copyright regulations are respected, required permissions are obtained and necessary costs are covered. Carleton has also updated its Fair Dealing Policy.
