And copyright was everyone's favorite bit, as usual. My own favorite part of teaching any class on copyright is where I ask "Who can explain copyright to me" and the whole group pulls the blankest blank faces that ever blanked. If they haven't learned about it on the internet or seen it in another class before, my students just can't manage to even guess how this copyright business works and what it's supposed to be accomplishing. These are intelligent young people, and they're perfectly capable of logically inferring how a system they don't know might work. The fact that they get nowhere when asked to figure out copyright shows better than anything how profoundly illogical and counter-intuitive current copyright laws are. It actually makes me hopeful for the future of copyright reform. If your law doesn't make an ounce sense to the vast majority of people who are supposed to be obeying it, it'll have to crumble or become irrelevant someday.
