If McGill does not have access to an electronic version of a course reading, our COPIBEC licensing agreement makes it possible to upload scanned readings to myCourses while respecting copyright, within the following limits, most often without any extra payment or permissions:
15% of a work
1 entire chapter of a book (no more than 20% of the book)
To ensure compliance with the copyright law, these scanned texts must be reported using Savia online reporting system. Savia reports are used by COPIBEC for royalty distribution to copyright holders (authors, publishers, etc.) Reporting must occur BEFORE these readings are uploaded to myCourses.
