Copyright in the classroom

Those nice folk across the pond at the Electronic Frontier Foundation - an American digital rights advocacy group - have put together an educational package for schools called Teaching Copyright which is intended to 'correct Entertainment Industry misinformation'..

It is of course aimed squarely at the American legal set up but it includes information on the history of copyright, fair use, and peer to peer filesharing - and has suggested lesson activities that could be reapplied I'm sure in a European context to stimulate debate and learning about copyright and sharing cultural resources.

But that's something for the next generation... For this generation - make sure you get to the polls and vote by June 7th!

Copyright reform: Vote Piratpartiet in this year's EU elections..
