    Right to authorship, by Yamile Socolovsky

    Yamile Socolovsky

    Education International's decision to encourage discussion of an International Treaty concerning the exceptions and limitations to copyright for educational and research activities is both timely and necessary. The obstacles imposed on these activities by the excessively restrictive regulations in this area become remarkably difficult to overcome in the current context,...

    Nikola Wachter

    Technological advances have an ever increasing impact on every aspect of the education system, from the provisioning of education to working conditions and administrative governance.

    David Robinson

    If you’re looking for a cure for insomnia, then perusing Canada’s Copyright Act[1] might just be what the doctor ordered. The Act weighs in at a hefty 176 pages of dense legal text that is sure to induce somnolent yearnings in even the most caffeinated reader. On the other hand,...
