The Copyright Basics resource provides a general overview of copyright law in Canada as it applies to students, faculty, and staff of the University of Toronto. It also provides answers to frequently asked questions. Updated January 2023
The Copyright Modules provide U of T faculty, students, and staff with a general overview of copyright through seven short, self-directed instructional modules. These modules are intended to help the U o f T community ensure that their professional activities comply with Canadian copyright law.
The Copyright Roadmap is designed to assist in decision making when selecting resources and potentially copying material for use in teaching and research activities. This roadmap has also been adapted into an interactive e-learning module to help strengthen learners' understanding of copyright. In addition to the roadmap, the SCCO has created the Copyright Roadmap Course Modules to supplement copyright information at the University of Toronto. Any U of T community member can access these modules through Quercus, and course enrolment is not required.
This resource provides an overview of the copyright considerations that need to be taken into account when teaching online.
