Copyright Matters!

Members are strongly encouraged to familiarize themselves with their professional rights and legal obligations in regard to selecting and using copyright-protected materials in an educational context.


The Fair Dealing Decision Tool helps teachers decide whether “fair dealing” permits classroom use of print materials, artistic works, or audiovisual materials without first getting copyright permission. The tool helps teachers determine whether a specific intended classroom use is allowed by the Fair Dealing Guidelines.

Teachers! Thinking of using a copyright-protected work? Use this tool to find out if the use is allowed under fair dealing.
