Recently, the Council of Ministers of Education released a “Decision Tool” to help educators understand the legalities surrounding copyright of materials in Canada as they apply to education.
The Decision Tool is located here – http://copyrightdecisiontool.ca/DecisionTool/.
Navigation is dead simple.
Click a type of published work flies out more information. You continue to drill down until you get your answer.
If you’re looking for a quick and easy reference to check your use of a particular piece, you’ll find this tool helpful. Since we’re all so connected these days, this piece dealing with Internet resources is good reading.
The site acknowledges the original work from the University of Ottawa’s Fair Dealing Decision Tree. http://copyright.uottawa.ca/what-is-copyright/exceptions-copyright/fair-dealing-decision-tree
