When Copyright Goes WRONG!!!

It is a little tongue in cheek at the beginning but it is just about the best film about the issues surrounding copyright I have found. It is certainly easier to watch than that Disney thing we posted a week or two ago.

Boing Boing:

Ben Cato Clough and Luke Upchurch's When Copyright Goes Bad (from Consumers International) is a great, 15-minute mini-documentary on what copyright can do, what it is doing, and what it needs to stop doing. Appearances by Fred Von Lohmann - Electronic Frontier Foundation; Michael Geist - University of Ottawa Law School; Jim Killock - Open Rights Group; and Hank Shocklee - Co-founder of Public Enemy.
