AUCC Fair Dealing Guidelines Posted PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 21 December 2010


The much anticipated AUCC Fair Delaing Guidlines have been finalized and are in the process of being circulated. While no public release has been announced yet (indeed the whole process has been clouded in secrecy), a copy has been posted here and has also been the subject of discussion on various lists and websites. 

 

See in particular Howard Knopf's postings of Nov 12thDec 7th and Dec 21st which point to many problems with an earlier draft. The draft was fundamentally flawed largely because of its unduly restrictive interpretation of fair dealing and its generally over-restrictive approach to utilizing course material.  On first glance, the final version appears to contain many of the same problems. 

 

Watch for further and more complete analysis coming soon . . .
