This website is operated by Marc Moisan ("me") and its contents are protected by Canadian laws and international agreements. This statement is meant to inform all those accessing this website ("visitors") of my underlying claim to copyright ownership and to grant limited interest in the copyright of this website by way of licensing.


The copyright in this website is owned by me and its contents (including without limitation the text, computer code, artwork, photographs, images, music, audio material, video material and audio-visual material on this website) are either owned by me, used with permission of the legal owner or constitute public domain works.


Subject to their compliance with my terms of service, I grant visitors a worldwide, royalty-free, non-sublicensable, non-exclusive, revocable licence to view this website and its contents on a computer or mobile device through a web browser; to copy and store this website contents in their browser's cache memory; and to print pages from this website for their own personal and non-commercial use. This licence does not in any way constitute a waiver of any moral rights.

Reserved Rights

All other rights not granted in the licence above are reserved. For the avoidance of doubt, none shall adapt, edit, change, transform, publish, republish, distribute, redistribute, broadcast, rebroadcast or show or play in public this website or the material on this website in any form or media without my prior written permission. To request permission to use materials from this website visitors shall contact me.

Fair Dealing

The reserved rights above do not, and shall not be interpreted to reduce, limit or restrict any fair dealing for the purpose of research, private study, education, parody, satire, criticism, review or news reporting that could lawfully be made without permission.[1] However, to qualify for this exception the dealing must be fair. The purpose of the dealing, the character of the dealing, the amount of the dealing, alternatives to the dealing, the nature of the work and the effect of the dealing on the work are factors that courts consider in determining if a dealing is fair.[2]

Enforcement of Copyright

I take the protection of my copyright very seriously. Should I discover that someone has used my copyrighted materials in contravention of the laws, I may bring legal proceedings against them seeking monetary damages and/or an injunction to stop them from using those materials. They could also be ordered to pay legal costs. Infringing works might be liable to seizure in any country where this website enjoys legal protection.[3] If you become aware of any use of my copyright materials that contravenes or may contravene the license above, please contact me to report this.

Infringing Material

If you have a good-faith belief that any material on my website infringes your or any other person's copyright, please contact me to report this. I will expeditiously remove or disable access to the material that is claimed to be infringing and investigate the situation without delay. The material will only be made accessible again when and if I am convinced that I have the legal right to it and the complainant has been informed of my decision and the reasons for it.
