This session highlights the importance of options for retaining copyright for authors especially in the context of new university and funder OA policies that require faculty to retain some rights to make works openly accessible. The session will explore considerations that went into updating the SPARC Canadian Author Addendum and CC’s newest addenda offerings. While the Addendum is an important tool for authors who wish to retain their rights, it is essential to contextualize this tool within the framework of options for retaining rights.
