After almost 10 years of litigation, the Supreme Court of Canada recently issued its decision in the Access Copyright vs York University case. The Court determined that a tariff set by the Copyright Board is not mandatory and also declined to declare York University's copyright policies to be fair dealing. This means that the long standing question of the scope of educational fair dealing in Canada is still unanswered.
A year ago, WIPO launched a ground-breaking initiative to support creators all around the world. We are pleased to report that IFRRO has formally joined this initiative.
