The copyrighted content on digital media (the “Work”) must be used by each student in compliance with the terms set out below:
Each Work must be used solely for the benefit of the student covered by the request.
The student has a sensory, physical or neurological disability, as confirmed by a diagnosis, and has been referred by their Educational Institution.
The student using the Work must be duly enrolled in an Educational Institution.
The Educational Institution and the student cannot sell, lend, reproduce, download or save the Work or authorize a third party to take such actions.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, temporary downloading in order for the student to use assistive software is authorized hereunder.
If the student covered by the request does not need a paper-format copy of the Work, the Educational Institution or the student may pay Copibec the service charge as well as the same price charged for the paper-format version, as posted on the publisher’s website, for each digital copy of the Work, without being required to purchase the paper-format version.
If the student covered by the request needs both the paper-format publication AND the accessible digital version of the Work :
By completing the relevant section of the request form and signing this document, the Educational Institution certifies to Copibec that a copy of the paper-format version of each Work has already been purchased by or for each student covered by the request.
To deliver an accessible version of a textbook, each publisher may, at its discretion, decide whether or not to charge 50% of the price of the paper-format version of the Work, as posted on the publisher's website, up to a maximum of $50 per Work. If applicable, the Educational Institution must pay the price set by the publisher for each copy of the Work, plus the service charge.
Service charge: The Educational Institution must pay the $6 service charge per title ordered, regardless of the number of copies (e.g. 20 or 3 copies of a title = $6 service charge. But 1 copy each of 3 different titles = $18 service charge).
After you have signed this form and returned it to Copibec, you will receive an email containing a link to download the digital document. The link will remain active for
10 days, and will then be deactivated.
