The Professional Learning Centre

Faculty of Information Studies, University of Toronto

presents a one-day course in Toronto and Ottawa (Canada)


Toronto: Friday, Nov. 21, 2003

Ottawa: Wednesday, Nov. 25, 2003

Instructor: Jean Dryden

Fee: $180 Toronto / $260 Ottawa

Amendments to the Canadian Copyright Act resulted in significant

changes to the rules governing copyright in photographs. The new

rules are complex, and not always easy to understand. They affect

both ownership and duration of copyright in photos. Anyone who

preserves or uses photographs must understand the impact of the

changes to the Act.

Through lecture, examples, discussion, and case studies, this course

presents the copyright rules that apply specifically to photographs

and the application of the rules within the overall context of the

Canadian Copyright Act. Participants will learn about the difference

between ownership of the physical object, and ownership of the

copyright in it. They will also learn how to analyze a copyright

problem and how to administer copyright in a photograph collection.

The course includes the following topics:

* An overview of the Copyright Act and how it works

* The rules which apply to photographs

* A systematic approach to analyzing a copyright problem

* Your responsibilities as a user of others' photos

* Government plans for copyright reform


Librarians, archivists and museum curators who are responsible for

photograph collections; photographers wishing to protect their

rights, and anyone who uses photographs to illustrate their work in

print or online.
