Intellectual property

The form and content of this AMF website are protected by copyright law and by Québec, Canadian and foreign intellectual property law. Unless otherwise stated, all information available on this website is the exclusive property of the AMF. AMF trademarks, names and logos, whether registered or not, are also the property of the AMF.

Under the Copyright Act, R.S.C., 1985, c. C-42, it is an infringement of copyright for any person to do, without the consent of the owner of the copyright, anything that only the owner of the copyright has the right to do under the Copyright Act. Therefore, the reproduction of exam preparation manuals is illegal and strictly prohibited. Illegal reproduction gives entitlement to remedies by the copyright owner. In addition, the alteration of an exam preparation manual is illegal and strictly prohibited. For example, a manual whose binding is cut and its pages inserted into a ring binder is considered an altered manual.
