Please join us at ARTSPACE for a screening of Good Copy Bad Copy is a documentary about the current state of copyright, piracy and free culture. The film features a wide range of voices, from university lecturers and corporate CEO's to bootleggers and members of the Swedish Pirate Party. They give their perspectives on various cultural examples relating to intellectual property, for instance, peer to peer file sharing (The Pirate Bay), sampling - music copyright and the workings of the Nigerian film industry (Nollywood). Danish film makers Andreas Johnsen, Ralf Christensen, and Henrik Moltke position their film in this discussion by offering Good Copy Bad Copy for free download on the internet (with the option of a donation).
