The one-day conference is free and open to the public.

Abstract:

Constraining the Flow of Knowledge in Post-Secondary Education: Copyright as Impediment to Teaching, Learning and Research

In recent years there has been a widening disconnect between the broader notions of users' rights articulated by the Supreme Court of Canada in CCH v. Law Society of Upper Canada and other cases, and on the other hand, the institutional practices of many Canadian post-secondary institutions. This presentation will identify these disparities, ask what accounts for them, consider their potential impacts, and suggest changes in policy necessary to insure that copyright does not become an impediment to teaching, learning and research.
