What is Copyright School YouTube?

Our friends over at Public Knowledge are holding a remix video contest in response to last week’s, YouTube “Copyright School”. Meant to reform violators of uploaded infringements by educating and then testing them on YouTube’s copyright policy, the school also does a pretty good job of pushing fair use out of the picture. Literally. As a result, PK is offering $1, for the best remix or web video that more accurately explains both what you can and can’t do with copyrighted content. After mounting pressures from Congress and media conglomerates, Google’s YouTube Copyright School…

In Prince George County, Maryland students and teachers may no longer own the work they create both in and out of school. According to an article by Ovetta Wiggins in the Washington Post, work produced by students and teachers—and the revenues they earn—may become the property of the school system: “A proposal by the Prince George’s County Board of Education to copyright work created by staff and students for school could mean that a picture drawn by a first-grader, a lesson plan developed by a teacher or an app created by a teen would belong to the school system, not the individual.”…

Gym class has changed a little since parents were in school. Students are now learning more than how to play sports. Working up a sweat, is fun for the 4th Graders at Jefferson Elementary in Des Moines. Student Peyton Dueling says, “It feels sweaty, but it’s so fun.” And jumping rope is one of physical education teacher Stu Card’s favorite ways to get their muscles moving. He says, “It’s great for footwork. It crosses over into different activities, dance, basketball, tennis, things like that. We’ve got some wrestlers and they use it. It’s a great cardio workout.

What is Copyright infringement Laws?

The guys behind The Pirate Bay—the world’s largest file-sharing site and an important part of the debate regarding copyright law, piracy, and the Internet—have announced that they filed a police report today. The issue stems from an anti-piracy organization from Finland who built a parody website using pieces of The Pirate Bay’s website. Last week TPB revealed that they filed a lawsuit, and today they take things one step further and push for legal action to be taken. While it may seem unlikely that The Pirate Bay would be fighting for enforcement of copyright law, they have insisted—even…

How the internet works: The Internet works because open standards allow every network to connect to every other network. This is what makes it possible for anyone to create content, offer services, and sell products without requiring permission from a central authority. It levels the playing field for everyone and it’s the reason why we have a rich diversity of applications and services that many of us enjoy today. Who is charge: No one is, but everyone is.

What is Copyright date?

One of key questions for 2013 is Will Housing inventory bottom this year? . Since this is a very important question, I ll be tracking inventory weekly for the next few months. f inventory does bottom, we probably will not know for sure until late in the year. In normal times, there is a clear seasonal pattern for inventory, with the low point for inventory in late December or early January, and then peaking in mid-to-late summer. The NAR data is monthly and released with a lag.  However Ben at Housing Tracker (Department of Numbers) kindly sent me some weekly inventory data…

What is Copyright and Privacy?

I am still trying to understand the copyright and privacy issues in the U.S.A. As  a Brazilian, I never felt that copyright holders’ rights were that respected as written law per se. When I was in graduate school, in southern Brazil, I recall one of my classmates plagiarized paragraphs from somebody else’s work that he found online. It was proven that he did plagiarize. According to policy designed by the Federal University, he should have been expelled from the program, but after saying “sorry”, he was allowed to continue his studies. I don’t think this would happen here, in…

What is Copyright Act 2000?

The Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation has launched a consultation on amendments to the Copyright and Related Rights Act 2 (CRRA 2), to deal with the problems identified by Mr Justice Charleton in the EMI v UPC decision.
