If you are sitting in a Grade 10 classroom in Ontario studying civics this year, you may well be using Civics and Citizenship, published by Oxford University Press. Its a standard text for the compulsory course, examining how the Canadian political system works and asking students to consider such questions as whether our justice system is just or whether, if you didnt live in Canada, you would want to. It was written and edited by Canadians and also offers online access to an interactive workbook and a directory of 250 primary and secondary sources.

.

Released in 2014, it is the last schoolbook Oxford will publish in Canada. The venerable academic publisher, a non-profit institution owned by the British university, which has operated a Canadian branch since 1904, stopped producing texts for Canadian schools two years ago, cancelling plans for history and geography texts that were in the works. Oxford still sells its backlist to schools but will not consider publishing new school titles nor refreshing old ones.

.

As learning goes digital, publishing textbooks has become an increasingly difficult business everywhere, but Canada has made the situation worse, threatening childrens access to Canadian teaching materials, through its ill-conceived copyright legislation.

.

Balancing users rights with those of creators is always a tricky business and when the previous Conservative government updated the copyright law in 2012, publishers and writers warned that it had made far too large and vague an exemption for educational purposes, considering that digital copying in universities and photocopying in schools is standard practice and was licensed to the education sector by publishers. At the time, provincial education ministries promised they would only copy what was fair, but defining fair has proved highly contentious.

.

In 2013, emboldened by the new environment, the education ministries (outside Quebec) stopped making payments to Access Copyright, which licences copying in schools and universities for the publishers. Alberta had sued the association and in 2012 got a decision from the Supreme Court, ruling that the copying of short passages, even if copied multiple times, was fair. The court, which was split 5-4, did not define short but the Council of Ministers of Education has, telling teachers they can freely photocopy as much as 10 per cent of a work or one chapter in any book.
