« How soon is now?: Bloomsbury at 100 | Main | Strickland, Minow and Lipinski on USA PATRIOT Act »



I do not know of any such forum, and hopefully one of our readers will know of such a forum.

However, like in U.S. law, where fair use is determined by a court, based on four factors, courts in Canada use the six factors from the CCH Canadian Ltd. v. Law Society of Upper Canada for "fair dealing."

In both the U.S. and Canada, the factors are used in very fact-specific way (I cannot emphasize this enough!).

Some books that may help you about Canadian copyright law include:

Dryden, Jean E. Demystifying copyright : a researcher's guide to copyright in Canadian libraries and archives

Noel, Wanda. Copyright matters! : some key questions and answers for teachers 2nd ed.

I have been searching, unsuccessfully, for a Canadian Copyright Law forum wherein I might have questions regarding "fair dealing" answered.

If such a forum or forums exist, I would greatly appreciate any information as to links.
