Possible New Copyright law.

The FCC just proposed a new type of Copyright in it's new Broadband plan.

It would be voluntary, identified by a new copyright symbol. It gives the express permission to use the work for any educational work. Schools, Universities etc.

The FCC can't make the law, it's only suggesting it to Congress. States that Congress take "legislative action to encourage copyright holders to grant educational digital rights of use, without prejudicing their other rights."

Perhaps this is the start of some Copyright reform movement.
