MP3's on the school Network
Every so often i run a search across the pupils home areas for MP3's, wma's etc. etc. and then delete them as i have always been under the opinion that these are copyrighted tracks and it's illegal for us to have them on the computers.
I decided to run this search the other day except this time it's caused uproar. I have apparently deleted tracks that pupils had purposely brought in to include in their work. One of the teachers has stated that as the pupils are using the tracks for educational use the copyrights dont apply. Is this true? i'm still quite sure that its illegal for us to have downloaded mp3 tracks on our network.
Any help would be appreciated.
