The article discusses the measures being taken on anti-piracy in Australia headed by the Music Industry Piracy Investigations (MIPI) for the music industry. MIPI works on a number of recent education initiatives on topics like "Music for Free?" and 'In Tune documentary" to develop awareness on students and other people on the need to respect creativity for a strong future in music. MIPI then hopes to provide more educational materials to meet this objective, so it solicits comments from the people involved in the music industry.
