Does Canada already have fair use?

March 22nd, 2010

It is well accepted that Canada’s Copyright Act permits certain fair dealings with works.These dealings, known as allowable purposes, permit fair copying and other dealings for the purposes of research, private study, criticism, review, and news reporting, if certain conditions associated with the exceptions are met. These fair dealing exceptions operate differently from “fair use” in the United States. In that country the allowable purposes listed in the U.S. Copyright Act are non-exclusive, leaving it open to the courts to determine on a case by case basis whether a particular dealing is allowable and fair.
