EFF Launches Copyright Curriculum To Counter RIAA Propaganda Being Handed Out
To Schools

,----[ Quote ]
| It's been quite troubling that for years various schools have simply accepted 
| propaganda and totally inaccurate "teaching materials" about copyright and 
| used them to teach students. These programs have been created by both the 
| RIAA and the MPAA, at times. More recently, a lobbying organization backed by 
| both of those organizations, the Copyright Alliance (which has a long history 
| of making up the most fantastic myths about copyright) has been pushing a 
| copyright curriculum on schools.      



Radiohead's Manager: File Sharing Should Be Legal; It's Great For Music

,----[ Quote ]
| This probably isn't much of a surprise given Radiohead's well-publicized
| experiment with letting fans "pay what you want" for its last album, but the
| band's manager has now said that he thinks file sharing should be legal (sent
| in by Ruby), noting:
|     "We believe file-sharing by peer-to-peer should be legalised. The sharing
|     of music where it is not for profit is a great thing for culture and
|     music."

| Radiohead's “In Rainbows” album topped the U.S. sales chart this week,
| selling 122,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
| It arrived in stores in CD format on New Year's Day, nearly three months
| after the artsy British rock group unleashed the album to the Web at a cost
| to be determined by the user -- whatever price fans chose to pay, including
| nothing at all.    


Radiohead album bets on fast release, open pricing

| The release of popular rock group Radiohead's new album next week is the
