 Students and Copyright: Discipline and Punish?


"Microsoft has just come out with a new survey on student’s attitudes towards online copyright.

Open content, a neologism coined by analogy with "open source", describes any kind of creative work published in a format that explicitly allows copying and modifying of its information by anyone, not exclusively by a closed organization, firm or individual.
