A campaign to raise children’s awareness of the infringement of copyright on the internet, is the use of cartoons and games of words about the pop stars names, to pass on the message.
Even its makers admit that it is a “dry” and “niche” subject for a cartoon intended for children seven years of age.
But the Intellectual Property Office adds learning to “respect” the rights of copyright and trademark is a “key life skill”.
And it is hoping the adventures of Nancy and the Meerkats can finally make the intellectual property in the “fun”.
The series, which began its life five years ago on Kids Fun Radio, has been re-launched this week with the goal of bringing his message in the primary schools.

The five-minute cartoons to tell the story of a pop star Nancy, a French bulldog, who is fighting with his ideas-the flight, the feline nemesis, Kitty Perry, and teaches friends, including Justin Beaver and a rather weak Welsh sheep called Ed Shearling, about the importance of choosing an original name of the tape and save it as a trademark.

“They are the creators of the intellectual property, and they will be many to leave school or university to make a career in the industries that depend on inventiveness and creativity.
“A basic understanding of intellectual property and the respect of other intellectual property rights is therefore a key element of the life.”
But some fear that the POPE is being too heavy in its warnings about piracy and that the message could go against you.
Jim Killock, director of the Open Rights Group campaign, said: “Some of the material appears to be misleading, in particular the episode explaining that the download is the same as stealing in a shop.
“While it is fake, it is not the same in the law that downloading is a civil wrong, whereas theft is a crime, nor is it a compelling analogy.
“The POPE of the risks of the education of the children that copyright is stupid and immoral in putting forward arguments as simplistic as that.”
