History of fair dealing

A public service to all my academically-employed friends, who will probably never hear about this from CAUT, etc.:

A group of writers recently attempted to join an Association of Canadian Community Colleges seminar in which ACCC members were charged $125 to be instructed not to pay for the copyright material they use in their classrooms.  Free and fair dealing did not extend to letting actual writers participate, as this video of them getting the bum's rush demonstrates.
