The Association of Canadian Community Colleges has just struck a deal with Access Copyright. It is similar to the AUCC deal - with one big difference. It’s for $10 per student per year and not $26 as per AUCC and $27.50 as per UofT/UWO. Here’s the model license.

So why the difference? AC has suddenly and conveniently determined that “Although we have little data regarding digital copying on campuses, historical coursepack usage data indicates that universities copy 2.6 times more than colleges.”

This appears to justify why the ACCC license is for $10 and the AUCCC model license is for $26. But is there any evidence to support either figure?

Dear Jean-Yves Leduc and Leslie Weir,
Thank you for your time in presenting the developing situation with respect to copyright, over the course of meetings held with the Association of Professors of the University of Ottawa (APUO) in April and May 2012.

Following discussions with you and having consulted with members and experts of our university community, we encourage the university to operate independently and not sign the recent copyright model licence as negotiated between the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) and Access Copyright.
