Copyright basics - Digital works

Although the Copyright Act was written before digital content was widely available, digital works such as CDs, DVDs, websites and other online documents and files are protected by copyright. Fair dealing and educational exceptions apply to digital works just as they do for other types of documents. Library electronic resources, such as subscription databases and ejournal collections, are usually also regulated by licence agreements.
