Copying of Material & the Canadian Copyright Act

The Quinte West Public Library adheres to the laws of Canada governing the copying of all materials. The library retains a copying license for public libraries through Access Copyright, a non-profit organization

formed and run by Canada’s leading associations of creators and publishers. The Library operates within the terms and conditions of this license and makes every effort to ensure that customers and staff do likewise.

Use of photocopiers to reproduce all or a substantial part of work protected by copyright is governed by the Canadian Copyright Act. Copying of a work or a substantial part of a work protected by copyright requires the permission of the copyright owner. No part of some work, such as music, can be copied without permission. However, it is not an infringement of copyright to “deal fairly” with some works for the purpose of private study, research, criticism, review or newspaper summary. The responsibility of determining whether permission is required, and then obtaining permission, is that of the person making the copy and not the Quinte West Public Library. Staff will neither participate in nor condone infringement of copyright. The Canadian Copyright Act is available at Information Services should further information be required.
