In this article, Ando Urbas, IT journalist, consultant of media and marketing, and trainer for the Tiger Leap Foundation’s ‘Smartly on the Web’ programme in Estonia, shares his views* on teaching copyright to children and young people:

 

“Teaching copyright at school should be done calmly and without emotions, on the contrary to some copyright organisations’ rhetoric, which balances on the fine line of good practice and legality.

Cidadania Digital – Helping kids to be better digital citizens/Copyright

Cidadania Digital – Helping kids to be better digital citizens/Copyright | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Being the month when we celebrate World Intellectual Property Day (WIPO), it’s the perfect time to dedicate some thought to intellectual property online and intellectual property rights. The fluidity of contents on the internet, and the sophistication of information and communication technologies, allow access opportunities never seen before, but alongside this is often a disregard for the rights of those who created the content.

 

This sometimes happens deliberately, but most of the time it is simply because the user doesn’t think about it!

 

In Portugal, in order to raise awareness on this theme, Microsoft, in a partnership with the Ministry of Education (both partners in the Portuguese Safer Internet Centre), created the Cidadania Digital website.

 

This resource offers a curriculum tool to be used by teachers with students in 8th and 10th grade on how to be a good digital citizen.

 

===> This includes using/sharing creative content, while respecting intellectual property. <===

Teachers on the safe side of the law

It has always been the case that teachers collect content for their classroom activities. In Austria, there is a saying: “Teachers are collectors and hunters”.

 

They collect all usable content and hunt for the best bits in order to reuse it for their classroom activities. This, of course, has never quite complied with copyright laws. But in pre-internet times this was not a major concern as teachers’ materials were almost never published outside of the classroom.

 

Now, however, teachers’ ability to ‘hunt and collect’, and the boundless opportunities to share their material online, make it necessary to look for new strategies and at the same time raise teachers’ awareness about copyright issues.

 

Some schools in Austria have actually received cease-and-desist orders from lawyers for copyright violations, for example using copyright protected pictures on their websites.
