KSS at copyright lecture

Tuesday, Mr Smith accepted an invitation from Okanagan College to attend a guest lecture by Dr. Rob Tiessen of the University of Calgary.
Gilbert Bede of Okanagan College graciously hosted local librarians, educators and administrators so that they may hear an assessment of the current copyright status in Canadian education. With new legislation and Supreme Court rulings pending along with new technologies, the landscape is fluid at best. Dr. Tuesday’s survey of the laws and interpretations was very helpful. For now students and teachers at KSS MAY CONTINUE TO photocopy, watch movies and download podcasts as per usual but be prepared for some changes as soon as this year.
