Copyright in the Digital Age

I’m using Google Alerts to get articles about copyright and other subjects, and the things I see disturb me.
The boy scouts of Hong Kong are getting an IP badge. I wonder what they’re taught about IP? The industries pushed the concept. I’d like to see what they’re learning.
It disturbs me that there’s so much FUD associated with copyright. Search for “Sharing isn’t Caring,” a phrase I got from Google Alerts, on a search engine. You’ll get an eyeful, and an eyeful that is in many respects, wrong. We’ve got Christianity Today lamenting the fact that only 20 percent of their readers (from a poll) believe that all ripping/burning is illegal while 34% believe that personal copying is okay. That’s sad. Audio Home Recording Act, anyone? The Rio case? etc. etc.?
