Copyright and education

The Berkman Center at Harvard has a great new white paper on copyright and education. Of note are the case studies -- I was particularly interested in the one on film professors' use of circumvention to teach effective film classes and the one on George Mason University's Center for History and New Media (visit the CHNM here for some great new tools in teaching). There are signs of hope in the white paper's identification of people in the educational community who are willing to take risks to share information and promote learning, though it's depressing that such things should be risky.
