    U.S. UNDER SECRETARY OF COMMERCE FOR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY TO REMIND KIDS THAT ILLEGAL DOWNLOADING AND COPYING OF MUSIC IS A CRIME
    Government Official to Deliver Commencement at Legacy Elementary School in American Fork

    Washington, D.C. –U.S. Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property Jon Dudas will deliver the commencement address before the sixth-grade class at Legacy Elementary School on Tuesday, May 24, 2005, in American Fork, Utah at 9:15 a.m. In his remarks, Under Secretary Dudas will remind students that downloading and copying music, movies and video games without the permission of the artists’ or copyright holders’ permission is an illegal activity. Dudas will also talk to the children about the importance of intellectual property and describe the value of patents, copyrights and trademarks in our economy.

    Mr. Dudas is the lead policy advisor to the Secretary of Commerce, the President of the United States and Bush Administration agencies on intellectual property matters. As Director of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, he is responsible for administering the laws relevant to granting patents and trademarks, and the day-to-day management of the agency’s $1.5 billion budget and 7,000 employees.

    just because these kids can't afford all they download doesn't mean they shouldn't be able to enjoy it.

    Ooh! One sixth grade class. Do sixth graders even pirate stuff? Do sixth graders even know what a computer is? If this organization's pocket wasn't being filled by the government, I am sure they wouldn't even care about this crap.

    I'm sure telling kids about filesharing is bad when they know nothing about it. They may be encouraged for all I care.
