I’m from the States. How is copyright different here?

The copyright laws in the U.S. and Canada are different. For example, the U.S. has a provision known as ‘fair use’ which is different from the Canadian equivalent (‘fair dealing’). If you are from the U.S. or are collaborating with a U.S. researcher, you should keep in mind that the rules which apply to the copyright material you intend to use or create may differ depending on where you want to use them.
