Downloading Is Mean! Content Industry Drafts Anti-Piracy Curriculum for Elementary Schools | Threat Level | Wired.com.

Interesting article. While I certainly think it is good to teach children about intellectual property, what it is, and what the law has to say about it, I, personally, am not very comfortable with the idea of particular industries writing pro-industry curricula for our schools.

This begs the question (without answering it), of “where should the line be drawn in public / private partnerships, particularly when it comes to childhood education?”
