School board's desire to own copyright to students' work criticized2/4/2013
Sorry, Jimmy. Your charming homework tale of holiday hi-jinx is no longer your property. This is the strange scenario concerning folks after Prince George's County Board of Education in Maryland proposed a copyright policy that would result in the board owning the work created by both staff and students at schools in the region. The Board Chair Verjeana M. Jacobs has said it's not the board's "intention to declare ownership" of work done by students. But some are wondering why a policy ostensibly meant to guard against teachers selling on lesson plans created for Prince George's County schools also covers what the students create. [Source]
