About this Guide

This guide provides information about Copyright in the context of research and education. It does not provide legal advice, but it will assist members of the RDC community in making their own decisions based on a better understanding of their rights and responsibilities according to the Canadian Copyright Act.

It is everyone’s responsibility to comply with copyright agreements and legislation.



Copyright in the News

Bill C-11, the Copyright Act, came into effect on November 7, 2012 (two exceptions: sections on Internet Service Providers and those realted to the WIPO Treaties did not come into effect that day).

To read the consolidated version of the act, click here. This Copyright Guide will be updated in the coming weeks to reflect the changes this bill is bringing about to copyright practices in educational insitutions.
