Really? Downloading Is Mean?
Sep 26, 2013

The influence of the Copyright Industry which include board members executives from the MPAA, RIAA, Verizon, Comcast and AT&T is now coming to a school near you.
This corporate propaganda is inaccurate and inappropriate!

"Listen up children: Cheating on your homework or cribbing notes from another student is bad, but not as bad as sharing a music track with a friend, or otherwise depriving the content-industry of its well-earned profits." The Article reads.

In the sixth-grade version, (.pdf) teachers are asked to engage students with the question: “In school, if we copy a friend’s answers on a test or homework assignment, what happens?”
The answer is, you can be suspended from school or flunk the test. The teachers are directed to tell their students that there are worse consequences if they commit a copyright violation.
