The Canadian 'Media Smarts' website has added a 'Fair Dealing for Educators' section to the site ('Fair Dealing' is the Canadian equivalent to 'Fair Use' in the United States). The section responds to recent changes in the Canadian Copyright Act. "Until last year teachers' ability to use media texts in the classroom was extremely limited by the Copyright Act. Thanks to the expansion of the Fair Dealing exemption, fortunately, teachers and students are now able to use media in much more meaningful ways."
