Captain Copyright [Canada]

A bunch of online types report on the joys of Canada’s latest superhero – Captain Copyright.
He doesn’t rescue people from burning buildings, but he does teach children about the evils of copyright infringement. He also provides fun games for children and informs them of useful facts, like the average royalty for authors (though we suspect that this has more to do with publishers than copyright law) and the meaning of moral rights. Law Wire says that if children are taught all this at primary school, what will there be left for them to learn an university?
