Maryland proposal to claim copyright on students' work prompts backlash, legal review

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/02/...ash-legal/

Sorry, Suzie.

That tri-color macaroni necklace you made with gobs of glue stuck to the side could soon belong to the state of Maryland.

A proposal recently floated by the Prince George's County Board of Education would give them the copyright to anything created by teachers, students and employees before, during and after school hours.

A child's project, but also an online app or lesson plan a teacher creates, could be fair game.

According to a draft of the proposal obtained by FoxNews.com, "Works created by employees and/or students specifically for use by the Prince George's County Public School or a specific school or department within PGCPS, are properties of the Board of Education even if created on the employee's or student's time and with use of their materials."

The draft policy prompted a backlash from teachers and education activists -- causing the board to put the policy on hold pending a more thorough legal review.

Compulsory attendance and work + no compensation + no ownership of work product = SLAVERY.

The whole thing is just a civics education project in disguise ... Dodgy

How about what teachers and workers do? Would that not be like any other business with the employer owns it? The student thing I think is overstepping.

Honestly? Yes, to an extent they do, though nominally.

You want to expand on the point? If a doctor who works for the CDC finds a cure for X do you think he would own it? Or a tech working at the NSA who designed software to do Y, could he then start his own software company to profit from it?
