Fair dealing policies at educational institutions have been the subject of much controversy. But no one understands them better than the individuals whose job it is to interpret, explain and apply them on a daily basis. In this session, copyright specialists from three Ontario universities, take a deep dive into the different guidelines in place at their respective institutions. Using illustrative examples of some of the more complex fair dealing analyses they’ve been involved in, the presenters will demonstrate how sound fair dealing policy can enable nuanced fair dealing assessments that focus more on fairness than formulas.Stephanie Orfano is from the Scholarly Communications and Copyright Office at the University of Toronto Libraries.
