Teachers, Copyright, and Fair Dealing
Know your rights and know your limits!

Thinking of using a short excerpt from a copyright-protected work in your classroom? First, find out if you need permission from the copyright owner.

The Fair Dealing Decision Tool helps teachers decide, with just a few clicks, whether fair dealing permits classroom use of short excerpts from print materials, artistic works, or audiovisual materials without needing to obtain copyright permission.

It takes 30 seconds on to determine if the intended use is fair dealing.
