Copyright Office Launches Website for Kids

The Copyright Office has launched an interactive website aimed at middle-school children. The goal of "Taking the Mystery Out of Copyright" is to explain U.S. copyright law. The colorful and animated website includes a set of learning activities and employs a character named Detective Cop E. Wright, together with other original characters, to help bring a greater understanding of how U.S. copyright law operates. (View “Taking the Mystery Out of Copyright.”)
