Copyright guide

Copyright basics - Using copyrighted works

Before copying, adapting, distributing or performing a copyrighted work, consider if:

  • you are using an insubstantial or substantial part of the work
  • what you want to do may fall under fair dealing
  • there may be a specific exception in the Copyright Act that might apply
  • the copyright holder has granted permission or issued a special licence

In addition, at Concordia University, the Policy on Copyright Compliance as well as the Copyright Guidelines for Instructors have specific rules for our community.
