A resolution on restoring fair compensation to creators of content in Canada, adopted at the IFRRO Annual General Meeting 2017 

Adopted by its Annual General Meeting 2017 in Tokyo, IFRRO members agreed unanimously on a resolution concerning the restoration of fair compensation to content creators in Canada. The resolution urges the Canadian Government to restore fair compensation to creators of content, for the use of their works in education as part of the upcoming copyright review. Particularly, IFRRO members ask to the Canadian Government to restore the possibility for authors and publishers to receive fair compensation for the use of their creative work by educational institutions, by clarifying the limited scope of educational fair dealing and to encourage licensing solutions that provide a balance and ensure the sustainability of the text and image sector through collective licensing solutions for the use of content.
