Canadian Copyright Guidelines:

  1. Communicating and reproducing, in paper or electronic form, a short excerpt from a copyright-protected work, is permitted for the purposes of research, private study, criticism, review, news reporting, education, satire or parody.
  2. Copying or communicating a short excerpt from a copyright-protected work for the purpose of news reporting, criticism or review must mention the source and, if given in the source, the name of the author or creator of the work.
  3. Subject to the fairness test described by the Supreme Court of Canada, a copy of a short excerpt from a copyright-protected work may be provided or communicated to each student enrolled in a class or course:
    • as a handout, distributed in class or by email.
    • as a posting to Virtual Campus that is password protected and restricted to students of the College.
    • as part of a course pack.
A short excerpt may generally be interpreted as:
    • approximately 10% of a copyright-protected work (including a literary work, musical score, sound recording, and an audiovisual work);
    • a chapter from a book;
    • an article from a periodical;
    • an entire artistic work (including a painting, print, photograph, diagram, drawing, map, chart, or plan) from a copyright-protected work containing other artistic works;
    • an entire newspaper article or page;
    • an entire poem or musical score from a copyright-protected work containing other poems or musical scores;
    • an entire entry from an encyclopedia, annotated bibliography, dictionary or similar reference work provided that, in each case, no more of the work is copied than is required in order to achieve the allowable purpose.
