FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

Lunchtime listen: “Good Copy Bad Copy”

Happy Friday! Please check out GOOD COPY BAD COPY – a documentary out of Denmark about the current state of copyright and culture. Our good friend Rick Falkvinge of the Swedish Pirate Party makes some extremely valid points about the need to balance individual privacy rights with copyright; right now, content owners like the RIAA and MPAA are stomping on individual privacy rights which is unacceptable to him and to many others. Many others on both sides of the argument make appearances on the film — like Laurence Lessig, Siva Vaidhyanathan, and Dan Glickman (CEO of MPAA).

We’d love to hear your ideas and perspective about file sharing and copyright.
