Canadian Heritage committee  If I could add something, the system of collective licensing was created precisely so that the entire book doesn't have to be bought all the time. It provides that means of accessing without having to pay the full price of all books all the time for every student. It's also imp

Canadian Heritage committee  The expenses are mostly for the licences university libraries must purchase. That claim that the educational field has already paid for reproductions through those licences, was also raised by your university during the hearings before the judge. In the case of York University,

Canadian Heritage committee  If I may add as well, there's no doubt that there is digital disruption. Every industry, every business, is going through digital disruption, and it will never end, but what is really important in the context that we are dealing with and why we are here today is not to be distrac

Canadian Heritage committee  The only thing I will add is that what benefits creators, publishers and Canadians generally is a functioning marketplace, not handouts.

Canadian Heritage committee  Sure. I think the most important thing to assess, whether the purposes have been expanded as a result of education being added to the Copyright Act or something that the Supreme Court has done, is whether the end use that is being done by the education sector is fair. Ultimately,

Canadian Heritage committee  Again, I think the only survey that was done of copying, and the only determination of whether it is licensed or unlicensed, is the survey that was done in the York case. The claim that York University was already licensing the content or that it was digital disruption that was h

Industry committee  There are things that can be done immediately by communicating from the government's perspective whether they believe this approach is right or not. Just signalling to the education sector is a start. The government has also committed to making some changes to the Copyright Boa

Industry committee  I think one thing that's important to note and got very confused in the earlier panel is which courts or tribunals have looked at the copying guidelines. The Copyright Board did not look at the copying guidelines. It has not said anything about the fairness of the copying guideli

Industry committee  Educational institutions across the country have what is called “learning management systems”. They're essentially digital platforms that allow professors and students to upload content and share it with a class. They've gone from taking the material that was published and produc

Industry committee  Sometimes they scan it. Sometimes they already have it in a PDF. Sometimes they extract it from a larger PDF.
