Anti-piracy curriculum for elementary schools

 Content-industry giants and internet service providers are teaming up
to produce multi-grade elementary school curriculum which will denounce copyright infringement.

The likes of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA),
the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), AT&T,
Verizon, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and Comcast are behind the
pilot project which will be tested in California elementary
schools later this year.

The curriculum, called “Be a Creator,” is not quite
complete, producers say, though Wired was able to obtain the
various levels of content - from kindergarten to sixth grade -
which aim to communicate that copying is theft.
