The fair dealing provision in the Copyright Act permits the copying of short excerpts from a textbook.
Over the duration of a semester or course, students are allowed to copy up to 10% of a textbook or a maximum of one chapter.
Cumulative copying (e.g. copying a chapter each week) is not permitted and is considered copyright infringement, which is a serious offence.
