Key Limitations

While Fair Dealing and other user-focused exceptions in the Copyright Act provide clarity around what you can and cannot do with copyrighted works, the Copyright Act (and other pieces of legislation) place additional limitations on how these works can be used. You need to be aware of these limitations because even if you do a Fair Dealing analysis that indicates you can go ahead with some use of a work, there could be a legal conflict depending on:

  • what the work is
  • the format it is in
  • how it is accessed
  • how you plan to share it
