Update on Copying Sept, 1, 2011

Update on Copying and Copyright

York University's licence with Access Copyright to make copies of published materials ends on August 31, 2011.

What does this mean to the York University Community?


- obtain specific permission or another licence from the copyright owner to copy or post published material; or

- comply with York University's Fair Dealing Guidelines when copying or posting published material

Why is this important?

Copying outside fair dealing or without a licence or permission may result in personal liability for copyright infringement and increases the risk of copyright infringement claims against the university.

Who do I contact for more information?

Information sessions will continue to be held over the coming months to assist members of the York University community with this transition. This website will be updated frequently to respond to your questions. Click here to find out about our upcoming sessions. We are here to help.
