Copyright basics - Educational exceptions

(s. 29.4 to 30.04)

Under certain conditions, educational institutions or persons acting under their authority can make limited copies for instruction and examinations:

  • Instructors can copy a work onto a board, flip chart or similar surface and project a work in order to display it. The projection must be on the school's premises for educational purposes only. Digital projectors are covered by this section.
  • For the purposes of an exam or test, instructors can reproduce, translate or perform a work when it is not commercially available in an appropriate medium.

Other educational exceptions are discussed in the sections covering translation and performance, broadcasting and playing sound recordings and images.
