The Copyright Modernization Act: How Does Bill C-32 Affect Public Education?

The Copyright Modernization Act addresses several areas that impact education; specifically, it addresses the educational use of digital technologies in schools and materials that are accessible on the Internet.

The government has set up a site called Balanced Copyright

The Ontario Public School Boards Association, on behalf of the CSBA, has been instrumental in advocating for Copyright reform in the schools.  The CSBA has written a letter to the Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages as well as the Minister of Industry Canada in support of the passage of Bill C-32.
