Copyright and Archives
January 13, 2016, 9:00 am
to 4:30 pm
Room 610 Dr. John Archer Library
University of Regina
The Saskatchewan Council for Archives and Archivists is
pleased to present the following workshop:
Canada’s Copyright Act attempts to provide a fair balance
between the rights of the creators of works and the needs of users. That
balance is being tested by digital technologies that make it easy to copy and
use others' work without their knowledge or permission.
This one-day workshop will provide an overview of the
Canadian Copyright Act (including the recent amendments) and related case law
of particular relevance to archives, museums, and libraries that hold
collections of historical materials. Through lecture, examples, discussion, and
handouts, this workshop explains how copyright law works and presents the copyright rules related to the following topics: criteria for copyright
protection, ownership and duration of copyright, the respective rights of
copyright owners and users of protected works, international copyright, and how
to analyze a copyright question.
Librarians, archivists, museum curators, and information
managers responsible for managing and administering copyright in their organizations,
as well as researchers and other users of copyrighted content.
This includes two coffee breaks, but lunch will not be
provided and on your own. UofR campus-map.pdf

Jean Dryden’s expertise in copyright has been developed over
many years of experience as an archivist. As Chair of the Bureau of Canadian
Archivists Copyright Committee, she played a lead role in successful lobbying
for exceptions for libraries, archives and museums during the discussions
leading to the 1997 amendments to the Copyright Act. Her doctoral dissertation
(Toronto, 2008) investigated the copyright practices of Canadian archival
repositories in making their holdings available online. From 2008-2011, she
taught at the College of Information Studies at the University of Maryland,
where she was the principal investigator for a comparative research study that
examined the copyright practices of American archival repositories and their
impact on users. She is the author of Demystifying Copyright: A Researcher’s
Guide to Copyright in Canadian Libraries and Archives (2014). She teaches
copyright courses for the School of Continuing Studies at the University of
Toronto and for the Society of American Archivists. Most recently she has
completed a LLM degree, specializing in Intellectual Property, at Osgoode Hall
Law School at York University.
