Intellectual Property Office
On Wednesday, July 12, the Federal Court of Canada issued its decision in the litigation between Access Copyright and York University. The decision is over 100 pages and can be read here. Thompson Rivers University is currently reviewing this decision to determine what impact it may have at TRU.
If you have any questions or concerns about using 3rd party materials in your courses, in course packs or in Moodle, please don’t hesitate to contact the Intellectual Property Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are here to help!
The Intellectual Property Office is committed to ensuring that the TRU community is both compliant with, and benefitting from, copyright law in Canada.
We pursue these goals through:
- Educating the TRU community about copyright law and best practices;
- Maintaining a rights and permissions database.
