There was also a controversy on Fark some years back when somebody finally read the ToS and noticed the rules assigned copyright on all comments as "works for hire." Drew had his lawyer write up new language that merely granted a license to use comments in books and media as well as on the web site itself.

RogermcAllen: Lenny and Carl: GAT_00: Same thing companies do to all of their employees work.  If you have a problem with this, you must have a problem with that.

completely different situation. Nobody is forced to go to work somewhere. You can't opt out of taxpayer funded compulsory K-12 education.


Home schooling is an option of the parent, not the student.  The student can't opt for homeschooling without a parent or guardian to do the actual home schooling.  Therefore your solution fails to address the underlying problem - the student him/herself does not have the ability to opt out on his/her own.

As a minor does the child actually have any rights to the work they create, or do their work belong to the legal guardian?

If a child has no legal rights why can't I sell them?
