Captain Copyright flies in

Captain CopyrightIs it a bird? Is it a plane? NO! It's a UK version of Captain Copyright, the superhero just booted out of Canada because his school copyright lessons were biased.

Why is the Patent Office producing such one-sided "educational" materials for school children? Andrew Adams comments:

The Patent Office has, in my opinion, no business developing teaching materials by relying heavily on the interests of such an interested party and releasing such material with no independent scrutiny. The results of such a collusion are now available on the Patent Office's website. This one-sided presentation of copyright law, and its ethical, philosophical, social policy and economic underpinnings should not be presented by a government organisation.
