Copyright on Campus
The license agreement with Access Copyright to manage copyright for the photocopying of protected materials at the University of Windsor, and all other Canadian universities, expired on Dec. 31, 2010. In lieu of renegotiating a new license, Access Copyright has proposed a tariff that includes financial and other terms that are unfavourable to Canadian universities and colleges as users of copyrighted material. Consequently, the University of Windsor campus is no longer operating under a license with Access Copyright.
Any photocopying and scanning from copyrighted works by students, faculty,
staff and administrators must be limited to what is allowed under the Copyright Act of Canadawith guidance from the Fair Dealing Policy currently in force.
In order to engage in the following activities with copyrighted works permission must be obtained from the person or publisher who holds the copyright to the work:
- Making photocopies to distribute to students;
- Posting scanned copies in CLEW for students;
- Making copies for inclusion in Coursepacks.
Each individual faculty member, staff and student is expected to make every
effort to respect the law and existing license agreements in their use of copyrighted materials for both personal and professional activities.
In order to assist instructors in their efforts to operate responsibly under theCopyright Act of Canada, Leddy Library is piloting a centralized service to clear copyright on protected materials to be used for classroom instruction. If instructors chose to copy from protected materials for coursepacks, CLEW sites, Library Course Reserves or classroom handouts - they can use this service to make sure copyright is cleared. At this time, the pilot is only able to process requests to clear copyright for textual materials.
