The ALT Copyright and Online Learning Special Interest Group (CoOLSIG) are
pleased to announce we will be coordinating a UK Fair Dealing week commencing
21st of February – 25th 2022. This follows on from last year’s Fair Use/ Fair Dealing
week which ran across USA, Canada and other jurisdictions from the 22nd of
February – 26th, led and devised by Kyle Courtney (Harvard University).
The purpose of the UK Fair Dealing week, is to not only celebrate and raise
awareness of this important legal framework, but through discussion, events, and
success stories, celebrate the opportunities it presents.
Launch Event and how to get involved
We are planning to kick start the week with a launch event during the evening of the
21st, so please watch this space for more details coming soon.
UK Fair Dealing can’t be fully explored in a singular event or resource, given the
scope of the framework and the UK copyright exceptions its connected to and this is
where you come in. If you would like to be involved in the week, then why not
consider delivering your own Fair Dealing event at your own institution or writing a
blog post? There are numerous ways individuals can choose to participate in Fair
Dealing week, & for further examples, please view this page with more ideas.
