A ‘comic’ approach to understanding IP and Copyright

It is clear that simply putting the institutional IP and Copyright policies on the web and expecting all staff and students to read and abide by them is not completely effective. Even the improvement of putting the salient points on one page does not always achive the attention it deserves.

I was thus quite taken with the radical approach taken by the Duke Law School of creating a freely downloadable digital comic book expounding IP principles in pictures. I think the best link is to the HTML version of the “Bound by Law’ comic.
