UofT Says No to Access Copyright Agreement

In an announcement from Cheryl Regehr, Vice-President & Provost, it was stated “that, despite good faith efforts by both parties, we have been unable to reach an agreement with Access Copyright for a renewal of the current License at a price that we believe fairly values the service that Access Copyright provides…the University will be operating for the first time in many years without a License with Access Copyright.” (see PDAD&C #30, 2013-14, http://www.provost.utoronto.ca/public/pdadc/2013_to_2014/30.htm )

“The University of Toronto’s community consists of both users and creators of copyrighted material. The University remains committed to diligent compliance with the laws that address the rights of both.  In addition, the University spends over $27 million annually on Library acquisitions, including licensed material and electronic resources, and also supports scholarly publishing through the University of Toronto Press. “
