Popcorn Taxi: The 'Craphound' and New Tech Guru Cory Doctorow

Debates The Digital Future + Q&A
Wednesday April 19th - 7:30pm - Greater Union Bondi Junction

"Popcorn Taxi is proud to present outspoken novelist, commentator and new-tech guru Cory Doctorow as he debates the future for filmmakers and media artists in this special event presented by Popcorn Taxi and the Australian Film Commission.

Doctorow asks where does Hollywood get off, "with its antiquated business model, in treating the media user as a criminal with their draconian copyright laws?...Such laws limit the creative possibilities for artists and users." What's the future for copyright ?

This is a must for media artists! Includes an interview and audience Q&A conducted by Marcus Gillezeau, filmmaker (Firelight) and a specialist in digital production technologies."
