Good Copy Bad Copy

Good Copy Bad Copy documents the conflict between current copyleft law and recent technological advances that enable the Sampling of music, as well as the distribution of copylefted material via peer-to-peer file sharing search engines such as The Pirate Bay. MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) CEO Dan Glickman is interviewed in connection with a raid by the Swedish police against The Pirate Bay in May 2006. Glickman concedes that piracy will never be stopped, but states that they will try to make it as difficult and tedious as possible.

Gottfrid Svartholm and Fredrik Neij from The Pirate Bay are also interviewed, with Neij stating that The Pirate Bay is illegal according to US law, but not Swedish law.

The interviews document attitudes towards art, culture and copyleft in a number of countries, including the US, Sweden, Russia, Nigeria, and Brazil.

The situation in Nigeria and Brazil is documented in terms of innovative business models that have developed in response to new technological possibilities and changing markets.

  5. The digital age has really posed some major problems for the “old” way of doing business. I seriously doubt the companies are able to change as fast as technology.
