Hi all,

"SCHOOLS have warned they will have to turn off the internet if a move by
the nation's copyright collection society forces them to pay a fee every
time a teacher instructs students to browse a website."


I think everyone should read this and email the education minister. Details
on my website.

I've written to the minister about the issue and suggested she show
leadership at the top level by dealing with the issue promptly.
