Pinterest and Copyright
http://photographylife.com/pinterest-copyright-infringement-made-cool
Pinterest and Copyright
Pinterest is turning out to be a great opportunity for small and large businesses to gain exposure and increase sales. Other blog and news sites, such as Mansurovs, are garnering additional traffic as a result of people pinning its articles to various photography boards.
Despite the positive aspects of Pinterest, however, I believe there are some real issues with its business model, specifically related to copyright violations.

Children's Internet Protection Act (USA)
The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) is a federal law enacted by Congress to address concerns about access to offensive content over the Internet on school and library computers. CIPA imposes certain types of requirements on any school or library that receives funding for Internet access or internal connections from the E-rate program – a program that makes certain communications technology more affordable for eligible schools and libraries. In early 2001, the FCC issued rules implementing CIPA.

Deleting Online Predators Act of 2006 (USA)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deleting_Online_Predators_Act_of_2006
Deleting Online Predators Act of 2006 ... listing in Wikipedia
The proposed act would amend the Communications Act of 1934, requiring schools and libraries that receive E-rate funding to protect minors from online predators in the absence of parental supervision when using "Commercial Social Networking Websites" and "Chat Rooms".
The act would prohibit schools and libraries from providing access to these types of websites to minors. The act also requires the institutions to be capable of disabling the restrictions for "use by an adult or by minors with adult supervision to enable access for educational purposes."

The future of intellectual property
http://www.opendemocracy.net/media-copyrightlaw/gowers_4160.jsp
The future of intellectual property
Andrew Gowers, commissioned by the British government to map the next generation's intellectual-property framework, explains his thinking to Becky Hogge – and leaves her feeling that the "copyfight" for a public domain of information has only just begun.
The Gowers Review of Intellectual Property has been broadly welcomed by copyright campaigners. Lawrence Lessig, the godfather of Creative Commons, has labelled research conducted into the economics of copyright extension "fantastic", urging all governments to "muster the courage to follow this advice"; the Open Rights Group has said they are "delighted" by his evidence-based approach. In total, the report makes over fifty recommendations, some which can be implemented by the government immediately, and others that speak to reform in the European Union and even the World Trade Organisation.

Cybercitizenship
http://www.cybercitizenship.org/
The Cybercitizen Awareness Program educates children and young adults on the dangers and consequences of cyber crime. By reaching out to parents and teachers, the program is designed to establish a broad sense of responsibility and community in an effort to develop in young people smart, ethical, and socially conscious online behavior. In order to do this we must create a foundation about the proper uses of the new medium by drawing parallels between the off-line and online worlds.

Acceptable Internet Use Plocieis: A Handbook
http://www.doe.virginia.gov/boe/legislation/
To assist school divisions, we have created an electronic "handbook" of resources. Since schools are at various stages of implementation in the use of computer networks, this electronic handbook does not prescribe a single Acceptable Internet Use Policy. Instead, it provides links to various sources of information that may be helpful to administrators, teachers, library media specialists, and parents in the development of a local AUP
