p2pnet view Kids & Kartels:- “The concept of intellectual property and its value needs to be embedded inextricably into the school curriculum.”
“A Kiddie Spy program was launched in Hong Kong in 2006. Under it, 200,000 members of local youth groups would spy on internet activity and, report illegal file transfers”.
But No. This time it’s not Hollywood itself. But it is Hollywood child mind-rape, this time coming from David Puttnam.
In the Guardian, he points to a “recent FDA (Film Distributors’ Association) project aimed at the vital ‘tween’ generation of 8 to 11-year-olds, a teaching resource designed to stimulate classroom debate about why copyright existed.”
Teaching resource? It’s a pure, unadultrated corporate crap — another Hollywood indoctrination program aimed at implanting spurious Hollywoood ‘standards’ into the minds of our children.
“Today, it’s encouraging to report that this resource has been supplied, free upon request, to almost one in five primary schools in the UK – that’s 4,000 out of a little over 20,000 schools,” he says in the story.
Thankfully, we home school our daughter.
