when I first read that britisch school kids should get education in 
copyright law, I first thought "wow great, at least they learn 
something reasonable". But then I followed the link and I saw what it
really is about... it's all influenced by the music industry - and now
guess in which direction it goes. :-(

'Stealing songs is wrong' lessons head for UK schools

Open Letter Against British Copyright Indoctrination in Schools:

And before someone asks a stupid question: Of course it has to do
with software - it's the same copyight law. Anything you can say
about downloading music also applies to downloading software.
(There is just less good free music yet than there is free software)

(I need a job!)
