Kojo and Tom Sherwood chat with D.C. Council Member Elissa Silverman (I-At Large)
Students have always railed against the high price of textbooks, but today’s students have something generations of others did not: file-sharing technology. As textbook prices continue to rise, more and more students are pirating textbooks online–and American publishers are worried. We discuss the future of textbooks and the issues at stake when copyright law is transported into the digital age.
