Ambrose and Copyright

Ambrose is now relying on the newly-revised Canadian Copyright Act (and especially its fair dealing provisions) to govern decisions with respect to copyright. The Ambrose Library will continue to monitor developments in Canadian copyright legislation and in case law pertaining to copyright.

When it comes to learning and research, all members of the Ambrose community are affected by the new legislation and by recent copyright case law, and mostly in a positive way.

The best way to understand the implications of these developments for teaching and learning at Ambrose is to review our Fair Copying Guidelines which are updated regularly to provide the campus community with information and suggestions for best practices in using copyrighted material.

These guidelines are for the education of the Ambrose community and should not be construed as legal advice.

We will continue to update these pages as new developments occur. Any copyright-related questions or concerns should be directed to Sandy Ayer, Ambrose’s copyright officer.
