Commentary by Stephen Downes

Clarence Fisher points to a new website for students and teachers, Captain Copyright, providing free lesson plans and materials. The site, which appears to be promoted by Canada's copyright clearance industry (see the heavy-handed IP notice), is thinly veiled propaganda - the copyright violator in the kids' carton actually steals the drawings from the comic book artist before selling them in the hall for a quarter each. Interesting that the actual artist of the cartoon gets no credit on the site. Sad and pathetic, and as Fisher note, no mention of Creative Commons anywhere.
