I was looking through 2004's paper and realised we have to know stuff about the Freedom of Information Act... so can someone give me an overview of this and the other acts we must know about? I know about the Data Protection, Computer Misuse acts... what about the Copyrights, Designs and Patents Act?

The Copyright, Designs and Patents Act is basically about reproducing or transmitting copyrighted works like music books and movies, kinda like P2P programs and CD-Burning. Look at the Info Systems Notes Here and scroll to page 9 for more detail.

I don't have any notes on Freedom Of Information Act at all. I suppose google should yield some results there but I would say its unneccesary to know.

Good luck with the exam today everyone smile.gif

Do we need to know what the sort of penalties that happen if you break any of these laws?

Is it just me, or do most of the Info Sys teachers teach everyone completely different stuff to everyone else in the country?

Or are they all just useless and clueless? blink.gif
