Dear thecannon users,

Now that a new semester is upon us, it is important that all thecannon users are reminded of the policies involved with selling textbooks on thecannon.ca

It appears that some users are wrongly posting midterms, final exams, professors' course notes, completed labs and assignments and other materials for sale on thecannon that are the property of employees at the University of Guelph.

Not only is the sale of midterms, labs and course materials constitute academic misconduct, it is also a violation of thecannon's User Agreement and Article 52 of the Collective Agreement between the University of Guelph and the University of Guelph Faculty Association, which outlines the rights of faculty members to own creative and academic works they produce.

When posting classifieds on thecannon, Users agree that they will not offer Intellectual Property for sale on the site including but not limited to:

  • tests, midterms and finals
  • lab manuals
  • course notes and study guides
  • other instructional materials produced by faculty, librarians, veterinarians, staff and

Users MAY NOT sell midterms or other intellectual property on thecannon's classifieds.

Classifieds will be immediately deleted if they contain reference to the for-profit sale of any of the items mentioned.

Users who violate this rule repeatedly will have their accounts suspended or deleted from thecannon, and will be referred to the University's Chief Judicial Officer for further action. 

If you have any questions as to what consitutes Intellectual Property or other general inquiries, please contact Stephanie at [email protected]

Thank you
