Via The Screen Grab, one of our favorite film blogs, comes this tasty story about how Boy Scouts can now earn a merit badge for learning how to respect copyright laws for music and movies. Here are the details:

To earn the badge, Scouts must participate in several activities including creating a video public-service announcement and visiting a video-sharing website to identify which materials are copyrighted. They may also watch a movie and discuss how people behind the scenes would be harmed if the film were pirated."
