MUN’s Students’ Union Urging Administration to Reject Model License

Posted on

Yesterday, Memorial University of Newfoundland Students’  Union, Marine Institute Students’ Union, Grenfell Campus Students’ Union, and the Graduate Students’ Union released an open letter to the university’s Copyright Action Committee and the university community.  Their letter makes it clear that students are “very concerned about some of the clauses contained within the Access Copyright agreement and believe that the new $26 fee is unjustified.” The students’ unions  “urge the administration to stand firm in their decision to provide for the needs of our campus without signing on to an agreement with Access Copyright.”

They also point out that both the faculty association MUNFA and the NLLA have written open statements to the university urging them to reject the model license, and say they “support the messages of those groups unequivocally.”

Read the entire letter.
