Students Trying To Free Up Some Culture

from the end-of-lockdown dept

It’s unfortunate, but not surprising, that while the MPAA has direct access to classrooms where they can put on biased presentations that favor their business, those who want to point out how intellectual property laws are being abused need to form extra curricular organizations. Apparently, some people are trying to get together groups of students on campuses to explore how intellectual property laws are being regularly abused and to get as many people to understand why this is important. It’s certainly a tough job, as the entertainment industry has framed the debate as being about “thieves.” So, the “Free Culture” groups are fighting back with examples like Save the iPod, which are designed to give students a better idea of what’s at stake.
