Fair dealing decision tree

The Fair Dealing Decision Tree is a supplement to the Fair Dealing Guidelines to help you determine if your use of a copyright-protected work is fair, without requiring you to obtain permission from the copyright holder. Therefore, this Decision Tree does not need to be used for (a) works that are not protected by copyright (see Alternatives to copyright); works available under Creative Commons or open access licences (see Creative Commons and open access); or (c) works whose use falls under an exception to copyright other than fair dealing (e.g., education exception - see Instructor pages).
