Copyright laws are of great significance to teachers. The resources that they use in the classroom are an important element of the learning environment. The rapid adoption of digital formats for resources opens up many educational possibilities. On the other hand, the lack of access to these resources will increasingly challenge the relevance of education. Teachers recognize that there has to be a balance of the interests of both producers and users. This brief discusses six educational issues that should be a part of the balancing process: (1) recognition that all levels of education serve Canada's public interest and that new media have become a crucial part of that education; (2) the need for a broad definition of "fair dealing" that facilitates the use of a diversity of materials in education; (3) regulations that do not limit the ability to use resources from websites in the educational process; (4) the need for clear and simple processes and reasonable costs for approval to use materials for education outside the fair-dealing provisions; (5) the ability to reuse online resources in the offering of courses after the initial course has been completed; and (6) the right to unlock anticircumvention features for uses of resources in ways that do not contravene copyright.
