A recent article published by the Geneva-based BP Council examines Bill C-61 and its possible effect on universities.

The main issue cited by the article is the concept of fair dealing, whereby users make a single copy of copyrighted works for the purpose of studying.

It raises the question of whether Bill C-61, if implemented into law, would put an unfair burden on educational institutions using electronic copies of copyrighted works not for illegal resale, but for the purpose of education.
