Reaction to Last Month's Federal Court Decision on York University Fair Dealing

03 Aug 2017 12:53 PM | Michel-Adrien Sheppard (Administrator)

Last month, York University lost a case in Federal Court of Canada in its legal dispute with the collective licensing agency Access Copyright.

Access Copyright had sued the school, alleging it had been improperly reproducing and authorizing the copying of protected works.

The university argued that any portion of protected materials copied for course packs was covered by the “fair dealing” provisions of Canadian copyright legislation as interpreted by the Supreme Court of Canada and thus exempt from copyright fees.

York announced this week that it would appeal the ruling.
