What is fair dealing?

Fair dealing is one of the user rights in the Copyright Act (s. 29) that allows any person to make a copy of a copyright protected work without having to ask permission or pay royalties. In order to qualify for fair dealing, two tests must be passed: 

  1. The dealing must be for a purpose stated in the Act: research, private study, education, satire, parody, criticism, review, or news reporting. 
  2. The dealing must be fair.
