Can I use it?

The NSCC Copyright Decision Tool is a resource that helps you determine if your use of a copyright-protected work qualifies as fair dealing or an education exception.

Fair dealing is a user's right that allows you to copy short excerpts without requesting permission from the copyright owner. For more information about fair dealing read NSCC's Fair Dealing Guidelines.
