Canadian copyright law has changed significantly since the inception of Access Copyright. Most classroom use is now covered under "fair dealing". Memorial University spends more than 4 million dollars a year to purchase and license books and journals. That money comes from taxpayers, and goes directly to publishers and authors. A majority of Canadian universities have refused to sign the AC agreement. For more information on why, I'd recommend the blog of lawyer Michael Geist, particularly the post entitled "Access Copyright's Desperate Declaration of War Against Fair Dealing".
