University of Calgary says no to copyright collective

The University of Calgary will soon be ending their partnership with Access Copyright.

For the past 15 years the U of C has had a license with Access Copyright — a copyright collective that ensures universities have licenses to use and distribute copyrighted works while giving the authors and publishers fair compensation for their works.

The current agreement between the U of C and the copyright collective has been called intrusive by U of C’s copyright officer Wendy Stephens.

As of 1 September 2011 the U of C will start to manage their own copyright permissions.

This change will affect both students and staff at the university — via redwolf.newsvine.com
