This is a timely, well spoken short video, clearly explaining the issues surrounding copyright from both a consumer and business perspective. Â Three cheers for Ben Cato Clough and Luke Upchurch, creators of the work over at www.a2knowledge.com – also the folks featured in the video, namely
A film by Ben Cato Clough and Luke Upchurch.
Suddenly, copyright rules no longer do what they are supposed to do. They have gone bad.
This is a film about how copyright has become one of the most important consumer issues of the digital age; why corporate lobbying risks criminalising the actions of hundreds of thousands of people; and what the future holds for the fight for fairer copyright laws.
When Copyright Goes Bad is an introduction to the renegotiation of copyright and is for anyone interested in how copyright is affecting consumers. It features some of the key players in the copyright debate, including:
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.
