iPod for a kid so the MPAA and BSA get a kick in the butt

Seventeen-year old Corey F. of Chassell, MI wrote a superb letter to the BSA and MPAA as a response to the one-sided and strictly pro-them filesharing curriculum the BSA and MPAA snuck into schools. These groups got teachers to teach the curriculum by distributing it through the Weekly Reader Magazine or by getting visiting teachers from Junior Achievement to pass it on. The rad-i-cal ALA has also recently released their own filesharing curriulum in response to the lobbying groups’ insidious version – theirs is being circulated by librarians of public schools (so awesome). If anyone has a hold of the curriculum , let us know. The other good news is this up and coming, fiesty youngster is now off listening to his blue mini iPod with the glory of a large music library. Congratulations Corey! All the letters we received are travelling by mail to the MPAA and BSA as the wheel on the iPod mini turns and turns.
