Copyright Law (Canada)

Content of the law

The law defines fair dealing as copying works for the purposes of private study, research, criticism, review or newspaper summary. Fair dealing with a work does not require the permission of the copyright owner or the payment of royalties.

Although well-recognized in Canada and abroad, fair dealing has never been clearly defined by either Canadian legislation or the courts. Nonetheless some guidelines can be offered. For instance, a strong argument can be made that a non-commercial use for educational purposes is fair dealing, as well as the use of a part of a complete work (usually less than 10%, though no hard-and-fast rules are available).

We reproduce here a section of the Canadian Copyright Act (Chapter C-42) about fair dealing. To read the complete text of this law, please consult the Department of Justice Canada website.
