Copyright Act - Feds launch country-wide public consultation

Unattributed, CFHSS Newsletter, Jul 29, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

AUCC has staked out its ground in the copyright discussion in Canada. "It is AUCC's position that students and professors need to know they are not violating copyright law when using publicly-available works on the Internet, and thus the law should be amended to clarify that publicly-available material online can be used for education and training purposed without violating copyright. AUCC also argues that copyright law should allow a student to watch a lesson live online or later through a recording of a lesson." Its full position was adopted in 2007. Meanwhile Scott Leslie expresses his view to CNIE.
