AUCC/Access Copyright Agreement

by Faculty Association | Filed under June 2012.

There has been a great deal of attention paid lately to the AUCC/Access Copyright Agreement and the decisions of various institutions regarding whether to sign on or opt out. The University of Calgary has signed a letter of intent with Access Copyright and has indicated that it will continue to closely review options during the ‘grace period’ between  May 15th and June 30th.

We have compiled concerns (as voiced by the CAUT), the response from the University of Calgary and the follow-up response from the CAUT into one document:

Access Copyright — the Debate

We also want to bring to your attention an article by Dr. Michael Geist, from the University of Ottawa. We link to a pdf of the specific article here, but it can also be found at his blog.
