Find safe and licensed Digital Content – Music, Movies & TV, eBooks, Sport, Games


A multimodal online resource for investigating aspects of copyright and film and TV piracy in Australian secondary classrooms.

Copyright and film and TV piracy are a real issue with students. Students need to know what they can legitimately copy in creating their own work, or in creating their own entertainment.

You also need to know how to acknowledge copied work. Behind all this is the greater question: does film and TV piracy contribute towards a creative society, or does it threaten the creativity and society we all say we want?

This resource will help you explore these issues in a classroom-friendly way. Click on Resource Guide to see the contents of the resource, or click on a subject area (listed above) to see how to use appropriate units of the Module in the classroom in this curriculum area.

"By making it essentially optional to pay for content, piracy has set the price of digital goods at zero."
