Commonwealth of Learning Copyright Audit
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

To a significant extent, copyright law governs the production, dissemination and consumption of knowledge and culture. In an "information society" it is particularly important to ensure that the gates of learning are kept wide open. It is in this context that an examination of copyright law with respect to education becomes crucial. When performing an audit of copyright law, it is essential to keep in mind international treaty obligations: particularly, the Berne Convention, the Agreement on trade-related aspects of intellectual property rights -- which is consequent to membership at the World Trade Organisation, and more recent treaties such as the World Intellectual Property Organization's Copyright Treaty. Taken together, they define the international copyright regime. It is also essential to keep in mind that even from the perspective of the multifaceted international obligations that countries are subject to, there is yet great flexibility as to how copyright may be legislated, especially given national goals such as literacy and education. This last point is, unfortunately, not yet adequately known. The following copyright law checklist is an attempt at gaining a better understanding of not only how intellectual property affects education but also what countries have within their power to do, to increase access to education of quality at all levels.

Supreme Law - The Constitution (delivered by Internet Stars from the NFB)
Rating

Americans are passionate about their constitution. Canadians aren’t. Supreme Law is here to change that.

Made in partnership with the Centre for Constitutional Studies and directed by two-time Emmy winner Katerina Cizek, this interactive "choose your own adventure" documentary brings together Canadian YouTube stars, constitutional scholars, historic video clips, and meticulously researched background on one of the most important and dramatic political events in Canada of the 20th century.

And it’s all wrapped in a brilliantly retro visual aesthetic with a soundtrack of tunes that rocked the country during the ’80s. This is an entertaining and rich resource for anyone who wants to understand the stories behind the Canadian Constitution and how they continue to resonate today.
