The article below was written after I took Harvard's online copyright course (http://copyx.org/). I passed the final test and participated in the Bulletin Board and mailing lists, but ultimately failed the course because the class requires all students to install and run freedom-denying, privacy-disrespecting Adobe Connect in order to pass the course, and I refused to do this. Originally, I was asked to write this article for another blog, but it was never published in that blog. It is published here on LibreBoston for the first time.
I was reminded about this article because the Copyright X course has opened registration for its course in 2017 which can be found HERE: http://brk.mn/applycx17
I thought the class is worth taking and I would recommend anyone to take the course. However, if you do take the course, I recommend that you follow in my steps detailed below for the sake of your freedom and privacy.
