BCALMER - Copyright basics

BCALMER asked me to do a short presentation on Copyright basics at their Fall AGM.

The implications for teachers and publishers has consequences for how resources are shared, promoted and used in the classroom. While there were some raised eyebrows at some of the new freedoms teachers have in using materals, the group did some good brainstorming about how some of the implications could turn into a "mal pour un bien". (à la Napster as the impetus for iTunes and a new model for music distribution.) We also talked about the fragility of the Canadian market, and the value of home-grown resources. No answers, but lots of discussion.
