Copyfight: The Documentary
It turns out we have a namesake documentary project in the works:
While mass media continue to expose the general public mostly to restrictive interpretations of copyright, there has been an increasingly lively debate among scholars from a wide array of disciplines that challenge such interpretations. As indicated by the popularity of file-sharing networks and their millions of users, people are aware that not all is right with the current all rights reserved copyright regime. In the hope that it will provide intellectual ammunition and inspire them to take an active role in the copyright reform process, the documentary will present these users with an alternative narrative about copyright.
The aim of The Copyfight is to serve as a link between the scholars' debate and the general public. ...To reach its objective, The Copyfight will adopt a two-front approach. First, a sixty-minute documentary will be produced and released under a permissive Creative Commons license to allow file-sharing. Second, the website will serve as an index of videos related to copyright reform - be it recorded lectures or moderated debates. Along with the interviews gathered to produce the documentary, these videos will be available for the public to download and edit for their own documentary narrative.
