Federal Court of Appeals decision in Access Copyright v. York

The Federal Court of Appeals has released its decision in the appeal of the Access Copyright v. York case. Howard Knopf has helpfully provided links to the order and reasons in his blog Excess Copyright.

Long story short: The interim tariff is not mandatory, but York’s fair dealing guidelines cannot be declared as representative of fair dealing.

A more in-depth discussion of the decision will be posted on this blog sometime during the week.

Here is Michael Geist’s post on the decision.
