Awing dozens of students, a University of Memphis professor was "arrested" during class on Oct. 12, reports the Memphis Commercial Appeal –all in the name of teaching students about the repercussions of digital piracy. Instructor Margaret Rose Schultz was presenting a lecture to her Intro to Management Information Systems class when police pretended to arrest her. Schultz used her phony arrest as an example on the negative consequences of illegal downloading. Students giving a presentation on software piracy asked her to be "arrested" as part of their skit on illegally downloading music. "It was all meant to be a demonstration to impact students," Schultz said. "To let them know that software piracy is punishable by fines and arrest."
