i can find ten holes in every sentence he makes. "we'll get into copyright and why it's illegal to download anything." it's not illegal to download, just distribute or make money DAMMIT.
Actually it is illegal to download copyright material such as an MP3 file of a copyright song. It's not such a big deal unless you are distributing it, i.e. you are much more likely to get fined if you do so, but it's still illegal. If you use a bittorrent program to download copyright material technically you're distributing it anyway. Not that it's a different crime, I'm just saying.
However you're Canadian and I'm pretty sure Canadas copyright laws were incredibly lax up until a few years ago so I might be a bit mistaken, but in the UK it's illegal to download copyright stuff.
i hate this guy. i applied for this class to learn how to program, not to learn how to type. i should've applied for digital media.
Well to be frank I think any course at your level will be the same. At GCSE level in England (around your age) I did Computing and Applied ICT (the latter including some web based work such as flash and html), both of them were useless. You're not going to actually learn anything until you reach college/university - I suggest you use the Internet and maybe a library for any actual learning, programming or otherwise.
