Join us on February 28th at 11AM in the Lewis and Ruth Sherman Centre for Digital Scholarship for “Keep Copyright Fair,” an event that will bring copyright experts to McMaster for a discussion of Canadian copyright policy, its history, and its potential future — warts and all. This area of policy has a profound bearing on our work in libraries, so we are proud to present this contribution to the Fair Dealing Week celebrations.

Our speakers are Paul Jones of CAUT and Dr. Carys Craig of Osgoode Hall Law School. I will be moderating the event, which will conclude with a Q&A.

Sparks will fly as we discuss:

• Access Copyright (described by one of our speakers as an “exorbitant cartel”)
• Parliamentary skullduggery
• International intrigue
• Dramatic court interventions

…and more!

The event is being organized by the McMaster University Academic Librarians’ Association in partnership with the McMaster University Faculty Association and the Canadian Association of University Teachers with sponsorship and support from the Lewis and Ruth Sherman Centre for Digital Scholarship.
