Attempt to educate kids about copyright fails

OK, so I know this happened in Canada and I know that it is about educating kids and not our audience of adults, but I thought this article about a failed attempt to educate kids about copyright was quite interesting. An effort to educate kids as early as first grade met with such huge opposition that it shut down altogether, determining that there was no way to make everyone happy. I could really see this happening in the US.

It should also make you wonder - what are you doing to educate your students about copyright?
