If I have permission to post something to Canvas does this mean I can also include it in my course pack?

If you post a copy to Canvas, SFU's learning management system (LMS), and fair dealing covers it, it is likely that the copy can be included in a course pack without permission. If, however, the copy posted to CanvasĀ is permitted under a license agreement between SFU and the publisher, it is necessary to consult the license agreement to determine whether a copy may also be included in a course pack. Some copyright holders will grant users permission to put material on password-secured websites, like SFU's learning management system, but not to put the material in a course pack. The Custom Course Materials Coordinator must confirm whether permission is required separately, even if the material is already on Canvas.
