EFF LAUNCHED THE "TEACHING COPYRIGHT" CURRICULUM THIS WEEK to counter misleading educational materials produced by the entertainment industry -- materials that typically try to scare students into believing that making copies is wrong. In contrast, Teaching Copyright is designed to encourage students to make full and fair use of new technology while recognizing their rights and responsibilities. In addition, Teaching Copyright spotlights various stakeholders in the copyright debate, allowing students to better understand the controversies and make informed choices about where they stand.
Please spread the word and pass the link to teachers, librarians, media specialists, and technology instructors. They won't get to use it if they don't know about it! And please support EFF in our efforts to present balanced information about rights and responsibilities online.
