Weird Al Yankovic may have written a song about filesharing (which you can download) but what about a whole film about the same topic? You can get that, too.
Steal This Film is a documentary about the peer-to-peer organisationÂ and the filesharing movement. As they write about the documentary (part 1) on their website:
There have been a few documentaries by ‘old-media’ crews who don’t understand the net and see peer-to-peer organisation as a threat to their livelyhoods. They have no reason to represent the filesharing movement positively, and no capacity to represent it lucidly.
We wanted to make a film that would explore this huge popular movemet in a way that excited us, engaged us, and most importantly, focused on what we know to be the positive and optimistic vision that many filesharers and artists (they are often one) hva for the future of creativity.
The film is possible to download in several formats. I’ve done it now, and am going to burn it to DVD and watch it.
