New Piracy Documentary

ON PIRACY: On Piracy, Radio & Walmarts is a new documentary film by 20 year old University of Ottawa student Julien McArdle. The film is nearly 2 hours long and discusses music and movie piracy. Other topics include DRM, TPM's, the DMCA, why people pirate, what everyone thinks of it, etc. Deviating from the standard media regurgitation of this controversial topic, several interviews were conducted with top Canadian industry execs, copyright lawyers, pirates, government officials, consumers and artists. The film is currently available in pre-release form via streaming, bit torrent or google video. McArdle released the film under a Creative Commons license and eventually hopes to get the film translated into several other languages too...
