Copyright & UPEI

UPEI is now operating under a fair dealing context and the Library continues to monitor the copyright landscape as it evolves.

Please click here for our 2019 Copyright Watch update;  a new Copyright Watch update will be released in time for Fair Dealing Week 2020 (February 24 - February 28).

All members of the UPEI community are impacted by new copyright developments, and mostly in a positive way when it comes to learning and research.

The best way to understand these impacts and how you can act in this new landscape is to review our Fair Copying Guidelines which are updated regularly to provide the campus community with information and suggestions for best practices in using copyrighted material. These guidelines are for the education of the UPEI community and should not be construed as legal advice.

We will continue to update these pages as new developments occur. See our Copyright Watch pages for a more detailed discussion of recent and ongoing developments. Any copyright-related questions or concerns should be directed to the Robertson Library.
