Concordia Centre for Expanded Poetics criticized for publishing copyrighted materials

March 14, 2017

A centre at Concordia University has come under fire for an alleged violation of copyright law. Kate Taylor of the Globe and Mail reports that the school recently received complaints that its Centre for Expanded Poetics posted high-quality reproductions of entire books of poetry to an online platform without permission. Contacted at his office, centre director Nathan Brown acknowledged the centre's wrongdoing. “Posting those files was a mistake that has been corrected,” he said, adding that he will buy five copies of each posted book from the publishers. The reproductions have reportedly been taken down. Globe and Mail | Inside Higher Ed
