Kate Taylor on "fair dealing" consequences

Tuesday, April 26, 2016

On Saturday, April 23, the Globe and Mail’s culture columnist Kate Taylor spotlighted the troubling ramifications of the education sector’s interpretation of fair dealing.

The column, “Kids will suffer if Canada’s copyright legislation doesn’t change” highlights how Canadian creators and publishers have been impacted by this interpretation, including the decision by Oxford University Press to cease publishing for the Canadian educational market, and lost royalties and sales.

Taylor argues that Canadian children will ultimately be the most affected if the current uncertainty surrounding fair dealing continues and incentives for Canadians to create and publish Canadian content for the classroom are further diminished.
