Los Angeles Boy Scouts Learn Copyright Law
SUSAN STAMBERG, host:
Today's last word in business and it better be - is from the Boy Scouts of Los Angeles. All scout troops award activity patches - you know, merit badges for hiking, forestry, citizenship. In Los Angeles now, there is an anti-piracy patch.
Southern California, home to much of the entertainment industry, for Scouts to earn this anti-piracy patch they first have to learn the basics of copyright law, and then they - I mean doing knots is not enough - must choose from activities that include a movie studio tour, to see how many people could be harmed by film piracy. The AP reports the movie industry developed the Boy Scouts' anti-piracy curriculum.
