The Documentary Organization of Canada (DOC) is hosting a National Fair Dealing Roadshow. Next Thursday, January 27, 2011, the Roadshow stops in Toronto and there will be a panel discussion in which I will be participating. From the DOC’s website for the event:
The National Fair Dealing Road Show aims to introduce potential users to DOC’s Copyright and Fair Dealing – Guidelines for Documentary Filmmakers, published in May 2010. Filmmakers are encouraged to bring their “war stories” on copyright and to engage on case studies presented for discussion. As an exercise in building community-based consensus the panels also discuss copyright myths and argue whether a particular use of copyright-protected material would meet the Fair Dealing exclusion or not.
