CAUT and CLA Publish Copyright Resources PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 12 February 2008

 

The Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) and the Canadian Library Association (CLA)  have recently released some useful resources on copyright law and policy.

 

CAUT has dedicated an issue of its publication CAUT Education Review (Vol. 10, No. 1, Feb. 2008) to copyright.  The Copyright Act and Academic Staff provides a backgrounder on copyright law and sets forth CAUT's positions on nine specific copyright issues. 

 

CLA has produced a Grassroots Advocacy Kit which also include a sample letter to MP's as well as suggestions for conducting meetings with MPs.

 

Both of these resources are well worth reading.
