WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? The Prince George's County (MD) Board of Education has found itself in the hot seat with a new proposal claiming copyright ownership over any materials created by its teachers and students. The district -- normally under fire for low test scores -- is not the first to make this move. Neighboring Montgomery County takes a stake in any created works that involved using a significant portion of time and resources within the school system. DC schools use a common copyright law for any intellectual property created by employees.
