There seems to be a not very solid description of the concept of conservation of information on the Internet. Leonard suskind described the idea very well on discos program on the hawking paradox but this is the only place I have seen it described well. Any thoughts why cons of information isn't considered an important law to teach?

Proobably because the term "conservation of information" has been hijacked by the Intelligent Design community.

How. What do they use the term for?
