Wait, Was That An RIAA Education Campaign... Or Is It About Turning 
Schoolkids Into Unpaid Shills?

,----[ Quote ]
| Of course, since we were suggesting more reasonable responses to 
| the RIAA's proposals, why not have those same kids do a class 
| project where they talk about artists who have embraced what their 
| fans want, and have showed that it's possible to do quite well 
| with models that don't involve going to war with your best fans.


RIAA Asks Schoolkids To Assist With Propaganda

,----[ Quote ]
| We wrote about Music-Rules! and similar industry propaganda 
| efforts in May, outlining some of their falsehoods and biases. For 
| instance, the RIAA tells kids, "Never copy someone else's creative 
| work without permission from the copyright holder" â omitting the 
| important right to make creative fair use of existing content. It 
| also coins a misleading term, "songlifting," (which the curriculum 
| says is "just as bad as shoplifting"). Perhaps most disturbing of 
| all given that the curriculum is supposed to be adopted by 
| schools, it teaches kids bad math as part of its lessons on peer 
| to peer file-sharing.

MPAA: We Don't Need No Stinking Evidence!

,----[ Quote ]
| You get some positive news, such as the Amicus brief filed by the EFF and
| others in the Jammie Thomas case, which could net her a new trial.
| But also on Friday, the MPAA filed its own brief, one which basically says it
| feels evidence isn't necessary in the case of one of its copyright
| infringement trials.
