Diversity in what?
To those that argue that copyright impedes knowledge, we say this: copyright creates diversity. It is an essential component of a democratic society. It should be available to those who want to benefit from its existence, and respected by those who wish to access materials created under its protection.
I can see how schools paying $54.3m to the Copyright Agency Ltd in 08-09 could be considered creating diversity but I would like to know what the schools are paying for. Is it specific educationally designed material? I am wondering if anyone can access these survey results:
Last year surveys were carried out in over 300 educational institutions, including 280 schools, 8 universities, 15 TAFEs and 6 community colleges. Digital use continues to increase in schools…
I hope these results reveal quality, educationally sound resources.
