Copyright, Public Domain and Fair Dealing in Canada

According to Ryerson University, the AUCC (Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada) offers some guidelines regarding Fair Dealing and usage of items in copyright. For the purposes of private study and research, use of one copy of an entire periodical article copyrighted within a book or periodical issue, a newspaper article, bibliography, encyclopaedia, or dictionary entry and a short essay or story from a book relating other works is constituted as fair dealing. This falls under section 29.29.1 and 29.2 of the Canadian Copyright Act according to Leger Robic Richard, Lawyers, Robic, Patent and Trademark Agents which states that any work used for research or private study does not constitute infringement. Fair dealing depends upon the length of the excerpted material, the relative importance to a journalist or critic, how the work will be used and in what nature. Private study in Canada oes not include classroom study use which is permitted in the U.S.A. under their "fair use" clause.

As copyright and fair use pertains to Saskatchewan Libraries, they clarify that ideas and titles cannot by copyrighted, but may be protected by a patent or a trademark. "Fair dealing" or the making of one copy is allowed, and does not infringe upon the payment to authors of the books they have published. Usually under the library's Can Copy license, up to 10% of a publication or a book but only if it does not constitute the entire comic strip for instance. Music, commercial newsletters, advertisements, letters to the editors and works published by Her Majesty the Queen in the Right of Canada or any province or territory cannot be copied. Copyright begins from the date of publication even if a © is absent from the frontispiece. Re-publication of copyrighted works must be requested even if used in a non-monetary fashion.

Public domain works, or works are released from copyright 50 years after the date of death of the author(s) and thereford they may be freely copied according to Mission Public Schools. Also any work can be freely copied with the permissions of the copyright owner. Mission Public Schools notes that the author and source (i.e. a bibliography) must appear on at least one page of the photocopies. The fair dealing license set out for photocopying works at a library applies to only certain countries. Digitizing works may be permitted to make a paper copy under the same allotments.
