Find small independent bands and movie directors/producers that share their stuff via torrents, and start seeding. Or find these people and ASK them if you can seed their stuff for free, over P2P networks. Make sure you get that in writing, though, the bit about them wanting you to seed the stuff.

Not sure what your plan is (surely, you must be a lawyer?), but I don't believe a non-copyright holder can take you to court over someone else's copyright. See the Righthaven case for more info.

Yeah, we do homeschool (er, well, the autodidactic learning variation, anyway). My daughter went through kindergarten before we pulled her out, and my son hasn't been to a day of school in his life. They both know they have the choice to go to school - it's up to them, really - but so far they're both emphatically choosing to learn on their own agenda.

The stranger danger thing is really funny. My youngest, 7, walks to his grandmother's house regularly to garden and cook with her. She lives 8 blocks away, and sometimes he takes a buck or so from his change jar to buy a candy bar on the way. He has some friends up to 5 years older who can't navigate a few blocks, and have difficulty making change and small purchases. I do get tired of the "what about real life" questions, because at age 7, my son is doing real life significantly better than school kids almost twice his age.
