Canadian Copyright Changes for Print & Digital
Coursepacks and Avenue to Learn


As of December 31, 2015 McMaster opted not to renew their licence with Access Copyright.  The University is now working under the Fair Dealing provision of the Copyright Act and all copying must comply with the University’s Fair Dealing Policy

The Fair Dealing provision in the Copyright Act allows us to reproduce short excerpts of a copyright protected work for the purposes of education.

Short excerpt means:

Fair Dealing changes the copyright procedures around what can be used in a coursepack.  The readings you have used in the past may not necessarily be used in future coursepacks.  If you wish to use material that does not comply with the limitations outlined in the Fair Dealing Policy we are happy to request permission directly from the copyright holder. 

Please direct your questions to our Courseware Department
