Boy Scouts will be able to earn an activity patch for learning about copyright piracy and the evils of downloading movies and music.
To earn it, Scouts will learn the basics of copyright law and how to identify five types of copyrighted works and three ways copyrighted materials may be stolen.
The movie industry developed the curriculum.
The full story, excerpted above, was in Saturdays Seattle Post. One wonders whether any scout leaders are active in the EFF, or readers of Slashdot, who may amend the curriculum as it is presented. Also, I may need to ask my learned colleague at legalethicsblog.com whether Boy Scouts who earn this badge can actively practice what they learn, without having a law license.
