Bill C-32 and the Educational Sector: Overcoming Impediments to Fair Dealing
Samuel E. Trosow
This chapter will focus on some of the copyright issues facing Canadian students, teachers, librarians and researchers, and how they will be affect- ed by the educational provisions of Bill C-32 which would amend Canada’s Copyright Act. The bill proposes to add the word “education” as an enumerated purpose to the act’s fair dealing provision, it updates some of the special exemptions for educational institutions that were added in 1997, and it proposes some new special exceptions for educational institutions.
