Last week, the Association of Universities and Colleges Canada signed up for one of the most expensive copyright insurance policies in Canadian history. The policy comes in the form of a controversial model copyright licensing agreement with Access Copyright, a copyright collective that licenses copying and distribution of copyrighted works such as books, journals, and other texts. Should AUCC members sign the agreement they will pay $26 per full time student per year for the right to copy works from the Access Copyright repertoire.
