Film Piracy: Teach Children to Respect IP
Tweet of the week
Thanks to Peter Black @PeterBlackQUT for tweeting this week about the importance of teaching children to respect the intellectual property rights of others.
Ben Child, Guardian film writer and blogger wrote that Lord David Puttnam the president of the Film Distributors’ Association voiced his concern of the need for new methods to stop copyright infringement of films through internet piracy.
In a recent keynote speech as president of the FDA Puttnam said that:
“young people needed to be educated at an early age that it was wrong to illegally download copyrighted material”….”The concept of intellectual property and its value needs to be embedded inextricably into the school curriculum.”
