Copyright in Canada

Last November, major amendments to the Canadian Copyright Act came into force. These amendments brought the Canadian Copyright Act up to date to meet the current-day needs of creators, users and distributors of content.

CCM 201, a three-session online certificate course from SLA and Lesley Ellen Harris of Copyrightlaws.com, is an up-to-date primer on Canadian Copyright Law. Recent amendments, important Supreme Court cases, and practical applications of copyright to your situations make this course a must for all of those in Canada.

There are several important provisions of the Canadian Copyright Act that relate to the daily activities of special libraries, and CCM201 is the perfect opportunity to learn about them. The amendments are varied and must be read in light of the 1924 Copyright Act (as they are amendments to this Act and do not replace it). Like all copyright laws and situations, it’s best to be familiar with the entire Act and to understand how the different provisions in the Act relate to one another. And, of course, it’s great to be proactive and understand copyright law prior to enforcing your rights against someone using your content without permission, or before there is an urgent need to include a copyright-protected image in a publication.

In the course, you’ll learn about ownership, protection of rights, fair dealing and special provisions for libraries, infringement and remedies, how to protect copyright works, differences in Canadian and U.S. copyright law, and much more.
