CAUL Copyright Committee - The Copyright Committee focuses on advancing several of CAUL-CBUA’s strategic goals, particularly those related to Scholarly Communication, Resource Sharing, and Professional Development. The role of the Copyright Committee is to provide guidance and support to the CAUL-CBUA community on copyright issues and best practices, and offers research and advisory support to the Board of Directors in developing CAUL-CBUA copyright policy.
Members of the CAUL-CBUA Copyright Committee will provide updates on the situation with copyright and Higher Education in Canada. Copyright has led to some uncertainty for those in Colleges and Universities since the case between Access Copyright and York University came to a resolve and then appeal in 2018. Since that time, a Copyright Act Review has taken place by INDU, The Copyright Board of Canada has issued long awaited tariff decisions with no direction on them being mandatory or voluntary, and Access Copyright has filed a new tariff proposal. This panel will attempt to discuss and clarify some of these concerns from national and regional voices.
