Tech-Ed Funding to be Tied to Copyright-Ed?

Recommended Posts

feminazi writes "Ars Technica is reporting that California Assemblyman Ed Chavez has proposed legislation that would require recipients of an educational technology grant program to educate their students in copyright law as well. There are three areas of education that would be required: 'ethical behavior in regards to the use of information technology,' 'the concept, purpose, and significance of a copyright,' and 'the implications of illegal peer-to-peer network file sharing.'"slashdot?g=3721

That's a great idea :rolleyes: . Tell people about the wealth of free stuff that they can get on illegal P2P networks. That will stop those filthy pirates!

Seriously, I wonder how many more people would use P2P if they A)knew how, B)had fast internet connections, and C)had any idea of the amount of cool stuff was available. The lure of complete TV series in DivX, pre-release CDs and DVDs, and complete MP3/lossless discographies of certain bands can be mighty strong! ;)

Then again, it's amazing how many people have no idea how to use new technologies and are unwilling to learn, no matter what benefits might be reaped. Phillyman can probably back me up on that, being a Best Buy Geek Squad agent. :D
