Alliance Offers Free Copyright Resources to Educators

The Copyright Alliance, in the lead-up to Copyright Awareness Week, March 10-14, is rolling out a comprehensive online education resource and reaching out to more than 150 leading educators and education associations, connecting them with free, K-12 educational materials.

Available on the Copyright Alliance web site, an expanded, "For Educators" section offers age-appropriate curricula and is the most comprehensive collection of educational materials on the subject of copyright. The web resource includes lesson plans for grades K-12 from respected educational and online safety organizations such as the Close Up Foundation, Weekly Reader and I-Safe.

Copyright Awareness Week, sponsored annually by the Copyright Society every March, provides educators time to focus students on better understanding and appreciating copyright's role in society.

Throughout Copyright Awareness Week, March 10-14, a different curriculum will be featured on the Copyright Alliance blog. For more information on the educational resources, visit "For Educators" at
