Educating Young People About Water
Educating Young People About Water is a website for obtaining materials designed to help develop a community based, water education program that targets youth and links key community members. There are three guidebooks: A Guide to Program Planning and Evaluation, A Guide to Unique Program Strategies, and A Guide to Goals and Resources. The last guide is searchable on-line with more than 100 curricula summaries and checklists by grade level or topic. The guidebooks are five dollars each or can be downloaded from the site, and the 100 curricula materials are generally low cost or free. There is also a video available for eleven dollars that illustrates concepts explored in workshops where participants learn to design a community-based, youth water program. The video comes with a Program Leader Workshop Guide that explains how to conduct a workshop and use the materials in local planning session.

Transmission by computer of a work or copy of a work is a distribution of that work. Such transmission can, therefore, be an infringement of copyright, but only if it is a transmission to the public and is not a fair use. Private e-mail messages are not distributions to the public, but listservs, Web pages, etc. are. Also, remember that the act of transmitting something by computer can involve reproducing it as well. The moral here then, is that you run the risk of implicating at least two exclusive rights (distribution and reproduction) when you transmit something, so be aware that the opportunity for infringement is in some cases doubled
