The Lyrical Boundaries of Fair Dealing: Copyright, Community, Context, Coercion, Consolation
Mount Saint Vincent University
Informed by the methodologies of lyric scholarship and poetic analysis (elided here to lyric analysis), and written in a concrete, visual, calland-response format, this project provides a critical, lyrical, and material examination of the legal concept of fair dealing, its various stakeholder communities, and its role in Canadian society and education. Fair dealing is approached as a flexible, quasi-lyrical boundary object that is variously—even adversarially—defined by educational, legal, and commercial communities of practice that have a vested interest in the evolution of copyright law in Canada.
Boundary objects; communities of practice; copyright; fair dealing; library science; lyric scholarship; poetic analysis; postsecondary education; Supreme Court of Canada.
